    Anyone else doing the ATLAK tour/rally from Motowerks out of Chicago it is based in Galena in early June. Looks like they will have both flavors of road ride and gravel.

    If the doctors aren't lying, I'm going to have a one month baby by about then. Probably not going to make it

    That route in the first post is fun, but there are some more interesting roads in the same area.

    Message @Three Crates and tell him you will get him Fresh Donuts if he spends a day showing you the best roads in Kane County.

    @Kyrios yep yep, I know some way better tracks that include some of this area. Wouldn't mind leading any that are interested on a day ride sometime pending a sync up of schedules. I can send some GPS tracks in the near future too!

    Hey... Just re-discovered this thread.
    Any of you heading to Geneseo next Saturday, the 29th? I'm going for sure.

    I'm not planning on the Genesco ride but @matthaiduk and I are putting some thought into riding the Bitter End Dual Sport on November 4th.

    I'm probably going to be there. I need to clear a few work hurdles and talk it over with @Three Crates at the donut shop one day.

    I hear that!

    We've been informally talking about a 24 hour ride of Chicagoland's most "adventure-ish" trail (the vaunted LOL LAME), but it's probably going to be April or May before I could actually pull that off.

    From what I've heard St. Joe's dries up fast. I went there solo last December. Had a blast. A little bit for everybody. It will hopefully be a nice intro into a great season of riding.

    Apparently I blew away the GPX file in Google Drive at some point in the past. I understand how it happened, but I cannot believe I did that. I had to remake it from a log file I captured. It is reposted now in the first message. I have not ridden it in years, so I'm guessing we've lost some more gravel to the paving machine.

    Note about the forums: Most of the posts on this thread should be on the Chicago thread. More riders are looking there for people to ride with and places to ride.

    Shows what I know. I check that thread occasionally and it seems to be about everything _but_ people looking for other people to ride with.

    The Chicago page seems to be a place to find people to meet at a moto track if anything.
