Amish Country Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"Taking a spin through the largest Amish community in Illinois and the fourth-largest in the nation, you may come to realize that Amish country is best explored on a bike. On a bike you’re seeing the landscape at about the same speed as someone riding in an Amish horse and buggy, and you’re less likely to feel as though you’re intruding upon the Amish low-tech way of life. You’re also more likely to stop and chew the fat with someone at the Amish schools, Amish businesses, and dozens of small Amish farms that you’ll pass. Reinforcing the kinship between cyclists and the Amish is the realization that many Amish people ride bikes, too."
