WinnebaGO! Have it all in north central Illinois.

We toured Winnebago County in north central Illinois. This trip has it all: campgrounds, hills, countryside, rivers, beautiful parks, and a dash of urban scenery, all ninety miles west of Chicago. This three-night bike overnight with two full days of riding made a perfect shakedown tour before our tour around Lake Michigan.

Ride to Richard Bong State Recreation Area

Not many moms get to share their favorite hobby with their 19-year-old on his birthday weekend, but that is what my son and I did when he returned from his first year of college this past May. We rode from the northern suburbs of Chicago to Richard Bong State Recreation Area in southern Wisconsin, a distance of about 55 miles. Once there, we met up with fellow touring cyclists from Milwaukee's Cream City Cycle Club and camped out for two nights. We went on a beautiful loop ride to Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, and stopped at a local winery that makes hard ciders and brandies from apples!
