Here is a log of my GIT loop ride from Homer Glen, IL out to the Mississippi, up to Galena, then the Chain O’ Lakes and back home again.

Overall a 500 mile self supported trip during August of 2013.

I only had minimal food for a hot breakfast and occasional meals. I got most of my large meals from wherever I found services (sometimes “services” can be read as “gas station”!). Tent, sleeping bag, clothes, rain gear, plenty of water, phone, etc. I’m a pretty accomplished cyclist having ridden across a few states, but only have done it self supported a couple of times. I really enjoy the self supported riding.

Post Ron Bolin: Day 1 65 miles Homer Glen - Marseilles
on: June 14, 2014, 21:40

Day 1: 65 miles from Homer Glen to Marseilles

Mostly good terrain but a bridge is out on the trail about a mile west of Morris. Its not hard to reroute. Just go back North to Fremont then west and follow the road and signs back to the trail at Gebhardt Woods park. Take the concrete path on your right in the parks parking lot to get back on the trail.
There are some soft spots from here to Marseilles so just be watchful of them.
