You can get on Wolf road in Burbank (@ St. Charles) and
head south to 91st in the Willow Springs / Burr Ridge area.
It's probably 10ish miles. Lots of nice rolling hills with fairly
low traffic, shouldered roads.
I commute between 91st & Cass in Darien and York & Grand
in Elmhurst via Wolf Rd. pretty regularly, FWIW.
I do most of my riding LATE at night. Partly because I have a big aversion to sunlight, and part due to my dislike of heat. Late at night does have another benefit, traffic isn't so bad. Tonight was a ride down Lake, to First ave, down to Cermack, and back up Mannheim.
This morning, I am enjoying the sounds of the rail yard assembling new trains.
I will happily try the wolf road route. :-) I remember there being some nice stuff out in burr ridge. But I wasn't riding bicycles back then.
