Anybody else out ther have experience in cycling to chicago from out here? Any other tested routes.
I chose early Sunday 0700, minimal road traffic, minimal pedstrian presence in urban area.
The route: Geneva Rd to St Charles Rd meeting Lake St in (Melrose Park); Lake to Oak Park Ave North to North Ave on in. Took train back, allowing for adequate entertain and refreshmant on arrival.
No one showed much interest in me except for a couple drunks at Kostner who were too far gone to provide any threat.
