WinnebaGO! Have it all in north central Illinois.

We toured Winnebago County in north central Illinois. This trip has it all: campgrounds, hills, countryside, rivers, beautiful parks, and a dash of urban scenery, all ninety miles west of Chicago. This three-night bike overnight with two full days of riding made a perfect shakedown tour before our tour around Lake Michigan.

During planning, Ken was surprised to find that most of the east end of Long Island is really quite rural, with farms, fields and yes, Ferraris.

Peak to Peak Highway
