West Chicago, ILUSA
July 2, 2009
came through chicago based bike meet-up connection.
I'm intermediate mountain biker many years. Now prefer "moteling" it, and carrying light gear on bike.
Wis./Ill. rails to trails, and back roads, Kettle Morain (usually Friday before gets crowded, them maybe early Sat and take off; Moab Utah.
Mountain/trail riding, Kettle Morain(s), Utah,some local Il.,usually day affairs; back road or rails to trails often do "credit card trips, bring clothes etc., stay small motels. Heavy moutain bike/gear really suited to 25-35 mi/dy;have done 50/dy.
Love biking Wis. Live in Chicago area on Il. PP,now over 100 miles of trail, just about at the Il/Wis border. Done both Kettle Morains. Door county, even Devils Lake area back roads (steep hills!, but beautiful area), and most rails to trails rides.
Fun as usual. Third time for me.
