Bike Ogle – Bison / Reagan / John Deere Loop
Similar to above, but adds Dixon and Reagan sites. Wide rolling hills with a couple of good climbs. Typically on low traffic country roads, but some county highways with good visibility.
Highlights include the Nachusa Grasslands with spectacular views, hiking and view of bison herd; Dixon riverfront and downtown, with interesting shops and restaurants as well as Reagan information; John Deere Historical Site, with active smithy and historical displays. Great variety of views and rural environments.
