From the Back Cover

Illinois greets cyclists with a warm and varied embrace, from its small towns and urban historic areas to its scenic parklands replete with lakes and hills. Road Biking Illinois provides a personal tour of forty-three memorable rides that explore all the beauty and diversity the Prairie State has to offer. Soak in local history relating to the state’s most famous son, Abe Lincoln. Go back in time in old Mississippi River towns and in Amish country. Discover the sculptures and architecture of Peoria. Or combine a tour of wineries with the stunning scenery of the Shawnee National Forest. And then there are Chicago-area rides, including a visit to President Barak Obama’s neighborhood of Hyde Park.

Look inside to find:
• Detailed maps and directions
• Rides for every fitness level and ability—from easy 10-mile rambles to a challenging 75-mile classic
• In-depth information about each ride, including length, terrain, traffic conditions, and road hazards
• Recommended accommodations and restaurants
• Vivid descriptions of points of interest
• Options to create longer or shorter rides

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Book is a very good book if you are a cyclist looking for those weekend trips to enjoy. Great for those of us who do not have allot of opportunity to "trial & error" a cycling trip, the work is already done and you are guaranteed a decent ride. Maps could be better but the GPS Coordinates and turn by turn are great. Content wise I give this book 5 Stars!

Problem is that the translation to the Kindle, especially the older versions ( I have both a monochrome Kindle and a Kindle Fire HD) is that the text size in some areas varies widely and it is sometimes hard to tell when a new chapter has begun. This is most notable in the turn by turn directions in which some are a very tiny font and the direction just below is 30 times the one before. For these reasons I knocked a star off. This book looks better of course on the Fire HD ( which I love ). But I still use my old kindle allot because of size and battery life.

Over all good read. I would recommend and Road Biking guides by this Author.

The ride descriptions are great but the actual directions are so-so. Did the "Rockford Ramble" last weekend and around mile 12 there was a street that was not mentioned in the directions, then another snafoo around mile 14. Our biggest problem was downtown Rockford when the 'underpass' is mentioned. It didn't say which one and we ended up off track and winged it from there. We didn't want to backtrack and try to get back on the author's directions. We had a detailed map with us but not the one from the book so maybe that was our mistake. It still was a nice ride and we plan on trying one more from the book next month.
