Wed 28 July: Portage IN to Elkhorn WI

The final stage, albeit quite an exciting one in its way. After some debate, we decided to take the direct route, which is the I-90 Skyway and Expressway. We certainly got a good view of the Chicago cityscape, albeit shrouded in humidity and light smog. In total it was about 90 miles of urban motorway – pretty hot work on the bikes.

So, what else but … a Frappuccino!



The last few miles were more typical of the midwest that we’ve become so fond of. We stopped in a little town called Marengo for a sandwich lunch.

We unloaded and cleaned the bikes at Delavan, then rode them for the final time over to Elkhorn. Cycles Plus will sell them for us. I’m a bit sad, but we’ve had three fabulous midwest holidays, and it’s time to move on.

Tomorrow we drive to La Crosse to see our good friends Kathleen and Tom.
