I live just outside Rockford IL and if you come up there are trails that will hook up to the Wisconsin Trail system. About an hour or so ride, by trail, will put you in some of the small Wisconsin towns north west of rockford. I cant find a good web site from our club but you can contact tri-county alliance PO Box 111 Mt. Morris Il 61504 815-865-5259.
If you have any questions just PM and I will try to help.
