Kind of a Missed Connection but Interesting Interpretive Question Raised by Raging Driver

Was thinking of posting this in the missed connection thread but the road-raging driver that prompted me to post really wasn't anything new or interesting for regular commuters in the city.  In any…Continue

"There are some great ideas here too David.  I hadn't appreciated that Cherry would be good substitute for Walters.  Walters is good just west of downtown Northbrook but then the shoulder narrows to nearly nothing and, notwithstanding…"

"You are welcome! Glad it worked! I actually go that way often. If you are ever on a non-commute ride you can keep going on Saunders until it becomes Riverwoods. That will take you up to some great roads for riding up north."

Commuting Challenge - Evanston to Deerfield

Due to a job change, my awesome cycle commute from Southeast Evanston to the Loop has been converted into a far less awesome cycle commute from Southeast Evanston to Deerfield (on Saunders between Deerfield and Lake Cook).  My first ride was last week.  After much research and a few car trips, I settled on Sheridan to Cherry, to Willow, to Old Willow, to Sunset Ridge, to Voltz, to Waukegan, to Walters and then finally Saunders.  The ride wasn't terrible.  However, Sunset  Ridge has no shoulder…See More
