Go down that 1 street, take a left at the 2nd stop sign, then right after that 1house with the brown roof. Take that all the way down until you see a walgreens on the right, next to the MCd's, Wendy's, and Subway, then hang another right. Keep going straight until you see some twisties.

Haven't been through in a while I'm assuming? I went through there for the first time last weekend with ashwingop and I'll admit it wasn't the best especially with all the cow shit all over the place but it was nice having some corners close to my place. Makes for a nice little "round the block" route for me. PM sent in hopes you have it written down somewhere...

I forgot that you know this route as well!! I should've just PM'ed you to begin with. PM sent just in case you may have a variation of Jim.


TIA guys!

Yeah, he was the original person that was supposed to send me the route but he has it in GPS format which he'd have to convert to words or google map and he hasn't had the time to do it. I figured there were plenty of other people who knew the route as well and probably a good thing to check their variations as well.

Can you guys send me your maps. I'm going to church in LITH tomorrow and can do some scouting. I know the area pretty well. McHenry county roads have gotten pretty chopped up but there is still some really nice riding.

I too would appreciate some good roads in lake/mchenry co. I've been staying out of that area for some time because of all the congestion/construction, but if there are nice roads, it'd be worth the trip north.

Thanks!
