Cool. I know Tower Rd, right at Field's BMW on 94. I live just off Sheridan Rd in the city, but I've never driven it up that far. I'll have to check it out.
I cycle up there quite a bit, there is some fun stuff around the lagoon, a bit near Chicago botanical garden. A couple of things though:

-Lots of Forest Preserve officers
-Be careful with people enjoying a leisurely cycle / recreation activities

the left lane of 294 often moves at 85-90 mph.

I'll have to check out Sheridan Rd again. I remember almost spinning out my dad's '76 Grand Prix on one of the tighter curves way back when.

Southern WI probably has some great 2 lane roads.

We used to go up to Eagle River (too far to go to just drive) when our son went to camp there and often hit triple digit speeds.
