When I lived in the Suburbs of Chicago, back in the last century, I used to love to load up the van and head out to the frontier town they named Rockford after Jim Rockford of The Rockford Files. (Or was it the place that pilgrims could drive a Conestoga wagon across the Rock River?) I rather like to think of James Garner as Jim Rockford as the founder of the town that bears his name because Rockford has some baller trails. The OG – Rock Cut State Park, the compact and twisty Espenscheid, and the fabulous Atwood Park.
All of our friendly Illinois brothers and sisters should charge up the old I-Pass and set your nav to fun. There are two races before Christmas for cripes sake! What better way to prove to Santa that you’ve been a good boy or girl than racing your fatty to fun and perhaps even glory? If you haven’t ridden the trails at Atwood, you owe it to yourself to get out there for a spin.
