Bike Ogle – Rochelle / Chana Loop
One of the longer, yet easier loops to ride. This route stays on lightly traveled roads in the eastern half of the county and as a result has very few hills. Yet it encounters some very interesting landscapes, communities, and history. The ride is flat and fast, but with good points of interest.
Rochelle is at the turnaround point. An easy 1/2 mile turn to the left on Flagg Rd. provides the interested cyclist with a few extra miles if they wish to explore the town’s community bike trails, skydiving club, and acclaimed rail viewing station. This would truly provide a full day experience.
