Bicycle Camping 2015! 01 at Illinois State Beach Park

April 9, 2015 at 4pm to April 14, 2015 at 4pm
Let's gather our gear and go camping! Illinois State Beach Park is close enough to the city that almost anyone can come along. You can ride the Metra to Zion for $7.25(Plus $7.25 for the return), or a weekend pass for $7. After that the site is only about two miles. Theres a grocery store about a mile away. Kenosha is about 26m round trip. After work on Thursday, I'll take the Metra up and settle in. Feel free to camp there or another site. On the weekend a trip to Kenosha will happen.See More

"The unpaved portion of the McClory path is brutal misery with no shade but it would be a good warm up for the regular trip from Chicago to Madison over Memorial Day."
