Last year I rode to the Brat Stop on the recommendation from my Dermatologist and I decided to make it my big ride destination of this trip. Since Veterans Day was in the end of the week I decided I would do this ride on Friday, however, the weather boffins said Thursday had a predicted high of 75 degrees, which Friday was supposed to be 45 degrees. I switched my day off to Thursday.
Got stuck at a grade crossing but it was only a passenger train
I got to Gurnee pretty quickly but when I saw this flag and the direction it was heading (due north) I knew there was going to be hell to pay after lunch
But sometimes the maps are incorrect and the industrial park doesn't connect to the residential neighborhood
A mini Napoleon's Death March ensued where I had to carry my bike through some hedges
and then I found myself in Wisconsin.
and the construction crews didn't seem to mind either
Then I was in Heaven!
Cheddarwurst with everything on it, Sauerkraut, German potato salad and a PBR
As I mentioned earlier the headwind was so bad I decided to head towards the Des Plaines River Trail Greenway hoping that the trees might give me some protection from the wind
