This classic central Illinois ride provides a thorough introduction to the pastoral landscape of western Peoria County. Memorable hills and vales greet you in the first and final miles of the ride. In between, the gently undulating farmland is broken up by creeks, small towns, and abandoned strip mines now covered in grassland and filled with occasional small lakes and ponds. It’s for good reason that Peoria-area cycling groups have been happily turning their pedals along these roads for more than thirty years. The route offers a taste of the rural bliss that keeps many central Illinoisans firmly rooted in the area: In between pleasant little towns, you’ll encounter generous helpings of wooded hills and grasslands mixed with peaceful rolling farmland. Topping it off is an interesting starting point at the historic grounds of Jubilee College State Park.
