Scenic touring route
Lots of views of the Mississippi River and surrounding areas. Twisty roads. Overlooks at Nelson Dewey Park in Cassville and Pikes Peak on the Iowa side south of Marquette. Lots of places to eat along the way.
off the beaten path.
Just for fun
Test 2 ride
lots of sharp twists and turns.
Lots of hills, some decent curves, and a river or two.
Great ride some roads not the smoothest but it is northern Illinois.
Quick loop from 59 out to 47 and back to 59. Great fall colors.
Looking for a fun road with a great coffee house next door? Look no further this really tight winding road is senic as it is exciting! Rarely use police in this area but be careful none the less. There is a decent amount of traffic so do be mindful. Of course if you're going to be a hooligan ride it once or twice or even three times to become comfortable with the route
The ride is what you'd expect from Central Illinois, straight and flat for the most part. The State Park is a gem tucked away off the road, with a beautiful lake panorama to ogle at while you eat. The breakfast and friendly service made this little 100 mile round tripper lots of fun. My wife even had to admit she had a good time.
a river ride. rural roads.
Good scenery, nice turns, little traffic
Very good route through kettle moraine and ending in milwaukee
This Route runs parallel to the Kankakee River from Kankakee to Wilmington. Both scenic and curvy for middle Illinois
Curved ridge road, then twisty downhill to river.
Very Good trip especially if you do it in two days!
Nice variety of straight bits and some decent corners with changes in elevation, quite good.
