    Chicago area (or further afield) in March

    Hi

    I am going to be in Naperville for work at the begining of March for two weeks so I have a weekend to spend...

    I would like to do a weekend tour Frday Lunchtime to Sunday Evening.

    Is this feasible? What will weather be like?

    Any sugguestions for route - looking to do upto about 80 miles per day - Accomodation recommendations - Cycle hire etc

    The only thing that i managed to find is the length of the Illinous and Michigan Canal - 61 Miles so ok one way - is there a good route back to start or somewhere to continue on to?

    Any other suggestions most welcome

    Mark

    Here you go, knock yourself out with the Grand Illinois Trail which links to the I & M Canal Trail
