Formerly known as the Big Basin (many of us still call it this), Mugz Hideout in Channahon, IL is my most favorite local ride destination for a quick evening out. Watching the sun set here has always been a simple pleasure for me. There’s always a biker or a 100 at Mugz, even in the winter time with whom to swap stories. And inevitably I always get to see a beautiful little spider spinning a web to take cover for the night. Also located on the Illinois River, the cool breeze, beautiful trees, and wonderful company make Mugz one of my favorites for sure.

      Marci Marci – Thanks so much for reading. I do love Mugz for a sunset in the summertime. I’d love to have the picture to add. Please email to me at – I’ll be back for a visit in June/July and my group is riding together on Sat., June 29th – my only stipulation was that I had to be at Mugz for sunset, otherwise I don’t care where we go. 🙂 I sure hope I’ll see you on June 29 in the evening. There are a few articles where I mention Mugz… I remember one of them was comparing the sunsets with another place I was (might have been Key West) and I think there was another too, but so much writing, I get lost sometimes…. Big Hugs, U

    Ursula, on your journey you must check out an outstanding biker bar Teazers in Grand Rapids. Owner Bill Anderson is wonderfully hospitable. Peace out my girl!! /Christine

      Thank you very much for that Christine. I appreciate you following my journey and giving me suggestions like this. I look forward to hearing from you while I’m out on the road. Hugs!
