North And Northwest of Chicago Real Estate : Cycling From Glenview To Chicago Botanic Garden

Cycling From Glenview To Chicago Botanic Garden

Finally I made it to the Chicago Botanic Garden on my bicycle from downtown Glenview!

Below are some great shots and the Map from Map my Ride; that has a great application for smart phones. 

Cycling around Glenview  


I took a slightly different road at the end to get to Trader Joe's on my way home. 


Being exhausted after almost 10 miles it was easier to take some shots on the way back. The first image is a partial view of the beautiful Japanese plants section of the gardens.


Chicago Botanic


There are a few benches here for a perfect break with breath taking views. 


A few weeks ago I would turn around here not realizing that the goal is not that far away. 



At Skokie Lagoons in Winnetka you can rent a Canoe or Kayak.



Early morning rides are great even on hot, humid days. The nice air and forest shade helps. 

If you follow me on Twitter or are my Facebook friend you have a chance to see a few other pictures. 

Here is the Map of North Trail Branch System and a link to Forest Preserve District Of Cook County where you can find more info about the recreation.


Not to forget,  I bought my bicycle at Glenview Cycle to suport small local business.
