Well, because New Lenox’s Cruise the Creek Bike Ride and Fest is this weekend! The ride will take place on a two-loop trail through scenic woodlands, wetlands and prairie. You even get to choose between a six mile loop or a 10 mile loop. Or, if you’re extra energized, you’re invited to take part in both! Relax after with the live entertainment, food vendors and more.
