I would say "occasionally" if my father in law was still alive. He lived in Elizabeth, IL, about 30 miles east of you on Route 20. I've done some riding in that area but being from flatland Florida, those hills just killed me. I did do a lot of rides on the Savanna to Moline rail trail along Route 84. It was the least hilly area I could find since it followed the Mississippi it's entire length.
