Blackhawk Country Roads (Larry G)

Riding the lakefront with 20,000+ of your closest friends isn't your cup of tea????  What's that you say????  You would rather ride 30-60 miles of backcountry roads criss-crossing the state line instead????  Then this is your ride....  Let's head out to Rockton and to the Blackhawk Bicycle Club's annual Blackhawk Country Roads ride....  This has been a favorite of mine for a while now....  (But, unfortunately, life events kept me from being able to ride it the last few years....)  And, if this sounds like fun, but you're already registered for Bike the Drive, you can drive out to Rockton on Saturday....  They do the ride BOTH days!!!!

For more info....

    I did the 65 mile version today. I just want to let you all know, hilly is an understatement for the 65 mile version. 2700 vertical feet. I heard the shorter versions were not as hilly. The scenery was fantastic. The people were fantastic.

      Unless you consider round a shape....

      Round is a shape. I say that all the time. "Im in shape, the shape just happens to be round".

    Damn! This sounds so much better, but I've already committed to BTD.......I'll go next year :-)

      Well, I don't know about so much better than BTD (cuz it IS my fave :-) but this does sound cool! I have a route mapped that heads out to Rockton - will have to get that ride on the board!
