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.

• Options to create longer or shorter rides

Top Customer Reviews
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.
