Bloomington, IL: Turkey Burn
54 miles, 1,700 feet of climbing takes a new spin on BCF > North of Kappa > Congerville & back. Decent rollers and climbs for something close to home.

50 miles, 1500 feet of climbing, lots of b-roads and mixed surfaces. Beware of freeze thaw season… it can be a real mess… awesome to adventure on, but a mess, haaaa!
