Where to ride in Aurora?(7 posts)

Where to ride in Aurora?Kristin
Dec 11, 2002 7:59 AM
I need the names of a couple good streets in Aurora that will lead me out of town to places better for riding. The prarie path is covered in snow right now--which will be fun to try with my 22's. But I suspect I'll lose interest quickly, or get wet/bruised trying. Problem is, Aurora has got some pretty busy streets. At least those are the only streets I know. I'm near Diehl/59.

Try Jericho Rd. (24) which will take you West .That will get you to De Kalb Co.. line.From that point you're on your own.I don't know too much more West of that.I'm sure you can link up to some smaller roads heading further West.

Kristen-
Contact the Illinois Department of Transportation. They publish an excellent series of free Official Bicycling Maps that provide color-coded route suggestions based on traffic volume, surface type and width of shoulder of the road, as well as amenities and services available nearby. You probably need Map #1 in the series for Northeast Illinois.

We're allowed to store our bikes in the hangar at Aurora Flight Sciences, but they object to us riding indoors.

Oh -- sorry -- Aurora, IL?
