I plan to ride to Chicago Or Urbana,IL in late March. I have found two routes on Google Map. The one is Interstate Highway (I-40W,I-57N) inner state High Way (Maybe IL inner state highway). I do not know that Is there any bike lanes near Interstate or innerstate highway?
Also, I have the following questions
1.Is there very dangerous to ride bike on highway? ( dacoity, extort and etc.) Because of many reasons, I will ride by myself.Is there any violence criminal happen for cycling people in the past time?
2.In china, many people told me that if you drive bike in the highway or state highway china , you maybe attacked by dog. How about US?
3.Is there any other instructions I should know? (i.e:Weather etc)
4.Could you give me some suggestions?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
