Much of this ride follows the route of the Hillsboro–Roubaix Spring Classic, a favorite bike race in central Illinois. Cyclists love riding in this area because of the quiet roads and the constantly shifting terrain. As the roads change from flat to rolling to hilly, you’ll mount a few hilltops with open views of the surrounding countryside. Many Midwestern bike racers have the Hillsboro–Roubaix Spring Classic in mind when they start riding their indoor trainers in December. The early-April race features a 22-mile loop that rumbles through brick streets in Hillsboro and then dips and bobs through the rolling terrain between Litchfield and Hillsboro. There are short but challenging climbs and twisting descents.
