A newbie friend, who lives in Prospect Heights, around Wheeling rd and east Camp Mcdonald rd, would like to ride to Rosemont Convention center area ocassionally. He would like to omit the Des Plaines river trail. Is there any paved paths or low traffic roads he can use also, as a more direct route? thanks in advance.
Rosemont is this bizarre "no bikes zone". There are NO good routes into it, especially coming from the north.
I work at the convention center on occasion, I take lawrence west to des plains river road north and it is ok, not always the happiest of drivers on a 2 lane 45 mph speed limit street, but I take the lane and just ride my bike, it is a short distance from lawrence to the convention center
