MBC-Tuesday Ride 6/20/2024 Milwaukee Trail to Canyon River Golf Club w/ map - Report

Post event report:

7 riders met at Silver Park to enjoy this warm morning ride. Starting in Silver Park our route proceeded east along the Milwaukee Trail, with a short delay diagnosing a mechanical difficulty with the leader's rear wheel. After resolving the issue we continued through the Kim Williams Nature Area and looping around the Canyon River Golf Course with a branch out to the site of the now barricaded Tunnel 16.5 in the lower Milltown State Park. After a short break at the fence we returned via a southern route through the residential area of Canyon River Estates and the Milwaukee Trail.
