A little rain before the ride; a little rain after the ride. In between, we had a great ride on a fun and scenic route along the DuPage River. We had lunch at Famous Dave's along the way and cookies and conversation at Lake Hinsdale after. Thank you, Phil and Mary Kohl!
Thank you, Bruce and Mary Jane
Thank you, Den and Maggie!
Self supported trip from Chicago western suburbs, through Wisconsin to Milwaukee. High speed ferry across Lake Michigan and down Michigan coast and then across Michigan to Shipshewanna MTR 2011. Flat tire in Michigan.
Ride from Winona MN along Mississippi and then across Illinois back to Chicago Western Suburbs. Bottom of hill going up to Chestnut ski area outside Galena, IL. 95 degrees and fully loaded.
Leaving White Pines State Park, Illinois. The park has a few intentional stream crossings, but algae build up on road makes walking across, let alone riding slippery.
Climb out of Prairie du Chien WI, out of the Wisconsin river valley up to Wyalusing State Park. 95 degrees and only shade we could all fit under.
Southwesterm Wisconsin. Taking short cut on gravel road along river so we don’t have to climb out of the valley, but some of the hills climbing on gravel made the rear tire spin out even with the loaded rear end.

Plenty of room in parking lot for all the CATS to see each other and congregate for a rare large group shot.
