Millennium Trail and Lakewood Forest Preserve

Today we just biked from home..out on the Millennium Trail but instead of turning around at our usual spot...5+ miles out, we kept going on to the Lakewood Forest Preserve. This section is a bit more hilly and it is also a prettier ride including some ponds, a lake, a small waterfall and lots and lots of trees by the trail.

I wanted to try this more strenuous section just once before I headed back home. It proved to be a bit more of a challenge than I expected, but I managed to complete 17 plus miles and hit the 1,000 miles mark on my odometer for this year! Not too shabby for a beginner!
