Spring Bay Road

- Approximate Fuel Costs: $3.12
- State: Illinois
This ride is from Hennepin to East Peoria on IL 26 and ends at IL 116. Here it is called Spring Bay Road. It is smooth and flat with lots of sweepers and moderate traffic. I first ran this in the spring when the trees were just starting to leaf and the scenery was great with lots of views of the Illinois River in between. If you pause at Henry, there is a mile of 'tree tunnel' on IL 18 until you cross the river. FXD07

I've ridden that route many times on my motorcycle and my favorite stretch is on RT 26 all the way to Hennepin where there's a nice place to eat on the south edge of town. Don't like riding it at night because the forest is real close to the edge of the pavement in most places and there are many deer in this river bottoms area! Stop in for supper or lunch at the Midway Duck Inn---terrific food!
