Skill Level: Advanced Beginner--see note below *
Category: Community Engagement Lake Paddles
Details: This is a fun paddle of the entire Busse Lake shoreline on the same day as the annual Cook County FP sponsored Night Bike Ride, which mean’s lots of activity. There is no cost for the paddle session. The night bike ride is a CCFP fundraiser and requires an entrance fee. I am going to attend both the paddle session as well as night ride. The paddle session will begin at 1pm and end about 5:30pm. The Nite Ride begins about 5:30pm. Many members of the Elk Grove Bicycle Club will attend the Nite Ride. I am also going to paddle the Fox River from St Charles to South Elgin and back early that morning. You are welcome to join that paddle session too.
*Must be able to paddle 22 miles at the rate of about 5 miles per hour.
Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries.
