Suburban question: Why are so many cyclists crossing Rt 14 at Dundee Rd in Palatine?

Hi I drive past Dundee Rd on Route 14 in Barrington/Palatine a few times a week.  It's a strange intersection, as Dundee as on/off ramps to get onto 14.  I frequently see cyclists crossing Route 14 which is super dangerous because of the speed.I know Deer Grove Forest Preserve is near by, but is there a common reason why someone would do that?  Do a lot of people bike in Deer Grove?Curious.BrianSee More
