Is that the one along the bike path where i ALWAYS see people walking bikes? If so, I can vouch for that (and many other algonquin/lake in the hills) -- it looks DANGEROUS in winter time.RedBasso said:Cardinal is in Algonquin, off of Edgewood Dr to the south. Just west of RTE 31 & south of 62. Go up & turn around at the top, you can hit 40+ going back down without pedaling.
yeah, these hills arent that bad. they were tough for me as a beginner, but they arent all that bad now.not sure if it qualifies as a hill, but casey road and almond road in libertyville/grayslake always gets me good. then, if i hop across 120 i can take the subdivision roads to huntclub rd south, hop on to andover, then take the main road through that subdivision. the road (leonard drive) has a nice rise, and then you can do the down and up of heather ridge road. problem with this is there is no shoulder on casey and almond road, and riding through subdivisions isnt all that fun.
fairfield between chardon and 120 has a nice little steep. but none of these are too long.
