Anyone have a preferred route around New Lenox
Tomorrow, Saturday June 26, 2009, I will be down in New Lenox for about 6 hours with nothing to do. I have to help my old man setup a craft show in the morning, and then I am free for 4+ hours. I am hooking up my bike to the back and taking it for sure. If anyone is down there and wants to ride, speak up. I will take off from around the United Methodist Church off of Haven near a cemetary and the church campgrounds.
If you know of a good route, link me to a map please. I am looking for about a 50 miler, but anything 25 or more will be fine. I have tried mapping my own route, but that whole Joliet Armory keeps getting in my way. Can you cruise through that at all?
Oh, this will be a slow pace ride too, I may hammer it at times, but want to chill around 15mph avg with a constant cadence, ie. try to limit any coasting. This is a "clear out the lungs" ride for me.
