Places to ride in northern IL?

The only decent place I currently know of in my area is Lake Geneva. I don't race though and they are only open for practice on Tuesdays. I've been thinking about taking a trip out to Byron (2 hour drive). Are there any other locations around here worth checking out?

Another place you might want to give a try is Buffalo Range Riding area in Ottawa. It's about 2.5 hrs from you. Roughly 400 acres of trails and an MX track as well. I have also heard of a club near Rockford that has a riding area. Don't know too much about that one so maybe someone from there can respond with that info.

We have a riding area southwest of Rockford, but it's woods only.
Let me know if something like that interests you.

I'd be interested in some more info, NDRO. I've ridden at Black River Falls, is it similar to their trails?

I haven't been to BRF on a bike. I have hunted up there a few times and it's nothing like our club grounds.

We have 30 acres just southwest of Byron. It's tight woods with a couple tree crossings (OK, Lots of trees). The woods loop is about 3 miles. Members can ride anytime they would like.

Only a few small whoops, unlike BRF, and no sand to speak of.


Email Ryan at forestcityriders@msn.com and he'll send you the info pack.
