    Your choice

    We're setting it up so the crew will have a choice of a local motel or camping. I'm planning on camping.

    Packed and ready to go.

    Roll Call

    Who is on board for our May 2-4 Bike tour to Quincy, Ill and the highways of Missouri? We're planning on leaving the Chicago area on Friday AM May 2 - meeting pt TBD - and follow a carefully planned scenic route down to Quincy, Ill. returning on Sunday May 4.

    Riders will have the opportunity to either camp or stay at a local motel in Quincy, Ill. Saturday will see us having breakfast in Historic Hannibal, Missouri (Home of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn) and riding on genuine scenic Missouri two lanes.... returning to Quincy and dinner that evening.

    Anyone in the region is welcome to meet up with us at any point on the ride, which means that if any of you downstaters want to join the fun you're welcome!

    I'm camping and am packed and ready to go!

    Talking Transferred route to MapSource.

    We can meet for breakfast at

    Three Brothers
    1220 S Eastwood Dr
    Woodstock, IL 60098
    815-338-5606

    (corner of Lake St. and Rt. 47, just north of US-14 and south of Rt. 120)

    There's a gas station around the corner also. We fill our stomachs and gas tanks here.

    The breakfast is okay. Second thought, I might scout for better tasting breakfast somewhere, I'll let you know, somewhere on our route and easy for others. We meet here annually for our Kettle Moraine ride.

    Anyone wishing for the garmin maps (.gdb) file can email me. I'll email a week before we go, this way, if I add any waypoints, you'll get the updated version.

    Thanks Martin -

    All I have to do is replace the mirror bracket and button 'er back up. 35 minutes after I get the part.

    My estimate says

    If we meet for breakfast in Woodstock, say 7am for 1 hour tops, we'll be in Dixon around 9:45am, that maybe too early for lunch.

    We stop for some great pie in Tampico at around 10:30am. I hope they still make great pies like they did 10 years ago

    I found Portside Bar & Grill in New Boston (town that at the banks of Mississippi river), probably 1.5 mile detour where we can stop for lunch at around 12:45pm

    BTW, about camping, I found the Siloam Spring State Park is about 20 miles East of Quincy! I maybe hoteling in that case.

    I rode out to 71 and 47 to meet up with some LT riders. Only two of us went riding, but it was a blast! Out to Starved Rock and around. 250 miles of smiles.
