This ride takes you on a tour of the gently rolling rural landscape just beyond Aurora at the western edge of Kane and Kendall Counties. Mixed in with the farmland are plenty of woods and grassland; there are streams and small bluffs; there are parks and animal pastures. Near the end of the ride, you’ll see some historic architecture in the old railroad town of Plano. Before returning to the starting point on the bank of the Fox River, the final mile takes you within striking distance of the Farnsworth House, an icon of twentieth-century residential architecture.
