Ride up to the Botanic Garden for the Kite Festival.
Indirect route up to the Botanic Garden heads north on Sheridan on some familiar routes to Highland Park, but with a few different twists and turns. It meanders into some neat little sections of town and travels on a couple of obscure bike paths before entering Botanic Garden from the north. Lock up bikes near the Plant Science Center and head west on the bridge out to the meadow for the Kite Festival. Leaves Botanic Gardens south through the forest preserves, then takes the scenic route through Indian Hills golf course. Final stop at Homer's Ice Cream in Wilmette.
