so who has the best

So who has the best route to starved rock?
Im looking around on google maps and am trying to figure out witch of these roads i have been on and i cant. Since peeps usually leave from gas city, im looking for a route starting from there. Im looking for scenery and of course some sweepers, changes in elevation and your basic nice ride.
If anyone can help me out with a map or directions of a good route it would be appreciated. I plan on heading out there on the 5th for a bike blessing with a small group that knows how to ride but these peeps have had the missfourtune of never leaving the city or wisconsin border limits. of course all will be welcome to come as soon as i figure something out. tba.
Feel free to pm or email some routes
dont post em up

We'r all good loving people here....aren't we?

I feel the same way. I have been on many SR runs and could not write the route out if my life depended on it, but I could do the route no problem without a map .
