Route Profile Data for the Entire Route


We have created the route profiles for the entire route based on the most commonly selected options for the entire route. For these options we assumed that you would stay at the main lodging sites or supported hotels the entire time, and that you would either do all century options or none at all.

Unfortunately it is not feasible for us to create a route profile for the entire route for every possible route. There are 40,960 total potential different overall routes on Bicycle Illinois, 8,192 total different routes if you do not continue on the Tri-State Tour and 32,768 if you do! And this is assuming that you depart from the same location you arrived at in every stopping town, i.e. you do not arrive at the supported hotel and depart from the main lodging site in the morning. Otherwise there are 1,310,720 total potential different overall routes on Bicycle Illinois, 262,144 total different routes if you do not continue on the Tri-State Tour and 1,048,576 if you do. YIKES!

If your plans for the entire route will vary from these general options, you can put the options listed for each day together yourself based on your personal preferences, or we can construct and send you a customized route profile for your specific plans upon request. Please contact us to do so.
