The Shanty Friday May 30, 2021
It all started at the McDonald’s in Hoffman Estates on the morning of Friday the 30th of May with social distancing parking by 9 cruisers.
We took off on our 40-mile ride by heading over to Central Rd and then onto Ela Rd. for that leg up to Lake Zurich. After passing by the lake in Lake Zurich, we picked up Midlothian for the trip north. Midlothian is interesting as it passes the schools in Lake Zurich and then through the back side of one of Lake Zurich’s industrial parks. Next, we were treated to open spaces with some new and older housing developments. Our next area to be passing through on Midlothian was the town of Mundelein. We passed by a couple of schools, the fire department and numerous subdivisions, which opened up to a golf course and open spaces on the north end. We next passed by the Lake Country Fair grounds which is one of the vaccination locations in Lake County. Our next adventure was navigating US45 north. With the size of our little group, we were almost bound to get split up on this leg of the trip, but with some communications between the front and back of the group, we only had to stop once for the back to catch up with the front. I guess there were too many intersections with signals. With the group back together, we proceeded north for the last leg of the trip. We hung a right onto Millburn Road and were greeted with no less than 3 roundabouts before coming to Wadsworth Rd and the end of our adventure tto the Shanty. With the Shanty changing their rules about the number of persons at a table, all 9, were able to be at the same table, so you can only imagine all the various conversations that took place.
