Grundy County Corn Festival Ride & Bonus Trip / 30 mi @ 10-12 mph / George Pastorino
Morris Corn Fest Parade via I & M Trail. Come and join George and Pussanee on a leisurely ride down the I & M Canal Trail to The Morris Corn Fest Parade. The Morris Corn Fest is a great event, tons of good food, a great parade down main street and really great buttered Sweet Corn! We will plan to arrive in Morris around 1:30pm and stay for about 2.5 hours to eat and watch the Parade. Cross, Hybrid, Mountain, or road bike works. We will take a very short detour on the way out to visit the Historical Burial Site of the legendary Ottawa Indian Shabbona who became the Chief of the Potawatomi Nation. This is a very interesting Cemetery and we will allow a bit of time there. Bring a decent cable and lock. Also handy are walking shoes. Take I 55 S to Exit 248 towards Joilet/Morris, go right on U.S.6 west (Eames St) to S. Center St., left on Center St. which turns into Bridge Street, go past Canal St. and over the Dupage River to Trail Parking on your left.
