Bike Ogle – Nachusa Bison / John Deere Loop

32.4 Miles

The signature ride of the described loops. This relatively short ride takes you twice across the Rock River, past grasslands with free ranging bison, and by the small historical village of Grand Detour – the pioneer home of John Deere where he invented the modern plow in 1837.
