Knob Creek Bourbon no less. I just did the Kentucky Bourbon Trail last week. I have a new appreciation for the stuff.

Sorry guys, this thread is way too long to search through... being new to non-pavement riding, are there any gravel or fire roads in Chicago suburbs I can hit? Nothing extreme. Just looking for non-paved roads.

Thanks!

Mccornack road. About 3 miles of hard packed gravel in elgin/gilberts. I ride on it when I want to forget I live in suburbia.
