Great Lakes - Need info on Springfield, IL area
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I have a quick question about a couple of the roads in the Springfield, IL area since I will be riding thru that area in route across the state. I would appreciate if you could PM me if you live in that area to answer some questions about a road that runs on the east of Lake Springfield. Thanks

Bring a gun, and ride fast.
seriously, are you saying it's not suitable for cyclists?

Not really but I have never really been comfortable in the city itself. That and I saw some crime statistics for Illinois that made Springfield look a lot worse than I thought it was.

Go to the League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB) site [ http://www.bikelib.org/springfield/springfield17x22.pdf] to view the Springfield bike map. I was there 4-5 weeks back. Was pretty dead downtown on a weekend.
