Smile Any current riders near Chicago?

Just recently moved back to illinois from a bit of wandering around Arizona and South Carolina. Looking to see if there are any members that live up here. Looking to meet some new riding buddys, do some exploring or find some local dirt, maybe even host a tech day or something. Let me know if anyone is interested.

there is so much good dirt out there to ride on. just plan on riding away from the city is all. you guys are all close enough check out the trans wisconsin adventure trail(twat) starts in dubuque area and goes somewhere up near superior. would be a great one to do.

Some of the guys I work with are planning on riding the twat at the end of this summer. It should be a fun time. The guys who run a guided tour of the route are coming to my work on Saturday for a presentation.

If the weather ever breaks freezing up here some of us klr guys should go grab dinner one night and take a little ride.

I'm in Spring Grove. There is some riding at Bong and I also ride the Cheese Country trail about once per month throughout Spring through Fall. There are also a number of gravel roads in Wisconsin. I haven't found any good riding in Northern Illinois.

I'm in Chicago. Would definitely be interested in attending a tech day. Rode the TWAT solo last year and had a blast. Considering repeating this season if winter ever ends.
