Best Motorcycle Rides in Illinois

the best Illinois motorcycle rides

Summer and fall are two of the best times of year for motorcycle lovers to roll their bikes out of storage, polished them up, and take them out for long and short rides here and there.

Illinois offers motorcyclists an abundance of beautiful roads to enjoy the exhilaration of riding.

Here are our some of our Chicago motorcycle lawyers’ top picks:

Elizabeth Scales Road, Elizabeth

This 12-miles of road is one of the best routes Illinois has to offer. The road is located off Highway 20 in Elizabeth. The road surface is smooth, with lots of sweeping corners. The scenery is gorgeous along this route, with farms, rolling hills, and incredible vistas.

Great River Road, Alton

This smooth road offers easy sweeping curves, but not too many twisted ones. There are many side roads off of this road for those “twisty” enthusiasts. The Mississippi River runs along one side of Great River Road, with all kinds of gorgeous scenery running along the other side, like farms, caves, bluffs, and wetlands.

Shawnee National Forest, Carbondale

The Shawnee National Forest provides a magnificent ride, offering waterfalls, bluffs, lakes, caves, and cypress swamps. The area, referred to as the Illinois Ozarks, offers riders hilly roads with lots of twist and turns.

Rock River Run, Rockford

This two-lane road runs from Rockford to Dixon and provides riders with the experience of a small Midwestern town. Riders will be traveling alongside Rock River, which offers sections of ravines and other rock formations. There is even a statue of Chief Blackhawk sitting high on a bluff, overlooking the river.

Scenic Ridge Route, Savanna

The Scenic Ridge Route offers 19 miles of smooth road surface and lots of sweeping corners. The route begins at the Mississippi Palisades State Park and ends a couple miles shy of Elizabeth. Along the way, you will enjoy the farms, rolling hills, and stunning vista views.
