Haven't been there but have been wanting to check them out. Looks like a pretty fun trail system. Almost signed up for a wems race there last fall, almost.

Yeah looks pretty cool, but want a first hand report. Not sure how far it is either. Brown county type trip probably.

This year I plan on doing some crazy ass riding at different places by myself on mondays. I think I will just drive early in the morning somewhere like this, ride for 5 hours, and drive home same day. I want to check out a few different places within reasonable distance from home to mix it up. I even get bored from Kettle after a few weekends.

I want to do the same. It made for a long day but I had a good time checking out Kickapoo last year. So far I'm thinking Levi, CamRock(WI), Ft. Custer(MI) and some of the trails around Peoria.

Ft. Custer is awesome. That is one of the reasons I like the Xterra tri there and do it every year. Peoria area is great too. Check out the PAMBA races, as they have some in that area including kickapoo.

Nice pics! I'd be down for going there.

Ken I'm still off sun/mon and work 3-midnight. Hopefully I'll get a normal schedule later this year.

Tony we will do some rides on mondays. Plan on it. Jon, I'm planning on not being able to move after the Roubaix, but I guess I should get used to it. I'll have to see what's up with my kid first though. I'm sure she won't want to ride with us.
