    I changed the route due to traffic issues with Conway Farms. I am trying to keep us off Gilmer as much as possible.

    You might run in to issues south of townline due to the BMW golfing thing. They are parking in that grass/rc airplane field along Everett.

      Called the Lake Forest PD and they said Everett is open to single file bike traffic however it is congested at the entrance to Conway Farms. They actually address this issue on their Facebook Page https://www.facebook.c...­

      I am going to revise the route to avoid Everett and Conway Farms. Stay Tuned.
