Illinois Bike Trails
 

 

 

Illinois bike trails provides rides through the Land of Lincoln in the Prairie State. Illinois has three major geographical divisions that provide for great biking in the state. Rested in the interior plains in the United States, the first area is metropolitan - great rides if you want paved paths. The second, located in central Illinois, is mostly prairie.  It is the Heart of Illinois. Ride through small towns and mid-sized cities for great hospitality.  Finally ride into southern Illinois to bike through the juncture of the Mississippi River and Ohio River.  It has a warmer climate. With all of this territory, get on your mountain bike, road bike, hybrid - just get out and have a good bike ride. Browse through the trails below to find more information about bike trails in Illinois. And of course, enjoy your ride.


You should also be aware of the bicycle shops and bike dealers where you travel just in case you need to pick up some new gear.  For a list of Illinois bike shops and dealers, please visit the Illinois Bike Shops page on US Bike Trails.
