I've done the Madison, WI Tour De Cure for years as my one fundraiser ride but this year I have a scheduling conflict. I looked at the Grafton version but the longest distance is 50k which isn't worth it to me.
So I investigated Chicagoland Rides and discovered the Chicagoland one is out of Wheaton. Here is the route (I would do the 60 mile ride, which looks like it's the 100 cut off by the green).
I know the map doesn't provide much detail - anyone done this ride or know anything about the route? I've been done there in the car (at least St. Chuck area) and it seems to be pretty flat (this is not really a consideration, seeing as I am used to hills). I am more wondering if it involves a lot of traffic (I assume so) as well as frequent stops for intersections.

I couldn't say 100% sure, but the area is generally pretty busy east of the geneva line north and some south. The only part that looks like it wouldn't be bad is way west on the 100 miler. I have friends up in the geneva area and I hate the traffic, but I am sure someone that lives there could give better details.
