"Ended up riding Metra to Waukegan then riding south. Hit up Only Child, Half Day Brewing and Prairie Kraft. Rode Des Plaines River Trail most of the way, only one underpass in Lake County was flooded."
"This weekend is a warning date for bikes on Metra, so not sure about getting back. If I was riding out somewhere I don't want to get stranded although I'm not sure how many people would be riding Metra to Lola at say 7 PM."
"If you want to add an extra mile or two there is a forest preserve north of 55, west of Harlem which will get you into Riverside from which you can take Riverside Drive through to Berwyn and then take side streets or Oak Park Ave or Ridgeland…"
