Windy City Cruise Ride Professional Review and Guide

"Surrounded by miles of cropland, an occasional wind farm, and a beautiful stretch of the Redwood River, this route offers cyclists a great place to ride when in Marshall. Known as the "Real Windy City," the average annual wind speed here is 16. 5 mph, while Chicago’s wind speed averages only 14 mph. Are you up for the challenge? Don’t fret! Leaving town, the ride heads southwest through rows of beans and corn.

Soon the terrain changes and the roads become more rolling, and you will find trees to protect you from the winds along the Redwood River. Crossing the river at the southern point of your ride, you will now meander back through the Coteau des Prairie moraines and up through a couple of river towns before returning to Marshall, a community that sits on a big bend of the Redwood River."
