Bicycle Illinois

Anybody done this ride from Cairo to Chicago? I'm considering registering and wouldn't mind some reviews about the ride -accommodations, ride support, etc. I've done RAGBRAI, and RAIN, so it seems natural to do Illinois... Thanks in advance.

Back in April of this year, I asked a similar question about this ride. Someone was kind enough to point me to a blog a rider did back in 2009. I found it to be very informative. I was considering doing the ride, but due to financial problems, I had to put that idea on the back burner.

The link is.... http://grcbicycleillinois.blogspot.com/

Hope this helps some.

Thanks for the link! I hope it's not too long before you can put this ride back on the FRONT burner. Happy New Year!
