I have a route I'll send you in a pm. The rest of the Chicago group likes taking spirited drives once a month in the summer and usually have good routes. Keep an eye out for those in the Midwest section come April-ish.

Come join us for the Spirited Drives and you'll find them.

I can send you a bunch of routes I've honed over the last 6 years. Of note:

- Western St Charles up to Starved Rock. There are some great roads in that mix if you go early to avoid traffic - Beith Road, Harter Road, Wheeler Road, Finnie Road, Sand Hill Road, etc.

- Hampshire Area (I90 exit at 20) up to Lake Geneva - our 'go to' route. Some good roads - of note are the 'hills' on Alden Road and Back Road just west of Lake Geneva off 50.

- Alphabet Roads - if you feel like driving a bit further, the 'Alphabet Roads' in Southern Wisconsin are incredible! Specifically, starting in New Glarus (near the Brewery) and working towards Dodgeville and then back towards Madison. Roads like Q, M, Zz, Jg and I are just incredible! And empty. Except for the deer I hit a couple of years ago!
