Bikers and passengers in the Schaumburg, Illinois area enjoy taking the scenic adventurous motorcycle ride known as “Baby Phase Nelson’s Last Day” trail. The ride starts in downtown Barrington along Scenic Route 47/14 heading west before turning north at Woodstock.
The route travels through Hebron and across the Wisconsin border, becoming State Route 120, where it passes along the eastern border of Big Foot Beach State Park just east of Geneva Lake. Bikers then travel into the city of Lake Geneva and turn left heading west on state Route 50 just a few miles before reaching Red Chimney Road. Turn north and travel two miles to the Wakefield Euro Cuisine and Speakeasy on Lake Como.
The first part of the ride out of Barrington takes bikers and passengers along beautiful farmland and small community towns. The famous historical marker positioned at the Wisconsin / Illinois state line brings visitors to the exact spot where the FBI confronted and captured Baby Face Nelson in 1937. The shops, restaurants, hotels and bed and breakfast inns make it the ideal location to shop, eat, drink and enjoy the wonderful community and scenic lake.
The quality of the roadway on state roads 47/14, 120 and 50 can become congested at times. Bikers and passengers are cautioned to remain alert even while traveling on the open roadway.Recent Schaumburg Motorcycle Accidents
The Illinois motorcycle accident attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers remind motorcyclists of the dangerous roadways in northern Illinois. The most recent serious motorcycle accidents around the Schaumburg area include:
- In July, 2014, a motorcyclist lost his life in a collision with an automobile at the intersection of Hartford Drive and Roselle Road in Schaumburg. The biker was found by Schaumburg law enforcement, paramedics and firefighters lying off the roadway at the intersection’s northeast corner. The accident involved a four-door sedan that collided with the bike, causing the rider to be ejected from the motorcycle. The female lone occupant in the automobile suffered only minor injuries and was transported to Hoffman Estates St. Alexius Medical Center.
- In July 2014, a 23-year-old Hoffman Estates man lost his life in a motorcycle accident in Schaumburg after colliding with an automobile. The accident occurred at Roselle Road and Hartford Drive, the same intersection as the incident above. The motorist suffered only minor injuries and was transported to the local hospital.
There is nothing in the world that provides the freedom and sensation as riding a motorcycle in the open air. However, truckers and passenger vehicle motorists are not always good at sharing the roadway with bikers, bicyclists and pedestrians. Many times, distracted driving or inappropriate behavior of a motorist leads to hazardous, dangerous and deadly situations.
