Soon you will approach Bell Road South and go left and it will complete a loop as it takes you back up W 159th. From there you can hop on 355 or go back to Route 83 via Bell Road.

Scenery

along Bell Road South there is a beautiful prairie, on 167 you drive through some hilly woods, over highways, along large ponds and small lakes, many creeks and wooded areas.

Drive Enjoyment

There are many hilly straight-aways, along parker road the road winds and there are some 15 mph sharp curves so ride with caution, the the road conditions along this route are real nice. Its a rural setting so other cars do tend to speed on Chicago-Bloomington trail and 159th but the rest of the ride is 35 - 45 mph. nice cruising.

Tourism Opportunities

along Bell Road and 159th there are services, restaurants, gas, and retail. 75% or more of the route provides no roadside amenities.

I've taken this route a few times. I never thought it to be a motorcycle road, really, but it is a route I took on my motorcycle to keep off of 45. Certainly a nice road, and makes the route more relaxing than a 6-lane road.
