I recently finished a route through Illinois. We have done Iowa, Wisconsin, and felt it was time to see our own state. The route takes in some of Bigdogs river to river ride, as well as some of Rhino's bridges. We rode a good deal of the Mississippi levee from just south of East St Louis to Cairo, Ill. We did this over 8 days. I know slow pace but the goal was to enjoy the scenery and see the sights. I am cleaning up the routes and will post up soon along with what will be a weak ride report since I do not have the skills that cannonshot or bigdog have when it comes to reports. Here is a video that will offer up some flavor to the ride. Strangely as it is, Illinois was not as boring as we thought! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7ZPk2J9g_s&feature=g-upl more to follow Routes are located further in. you can also find routes that were compiled by Big Dog. (thanks for that) If you have any questions PM me and I will help you sort them out.
