Actually I'm heading towards Pittsburgh,Pa.........so any advice or recommended routes would be much appreciated. I'm kind of stuttering in an eastward direction taking in local advice as I go.
Currently at Knoxville,Ia.
Not sure why you rode Hwy 92 since several people in this forum, including me, recommended NOT riding 92.
Anyway, head north out of Knoxville on Hwy 14. Go north to Monroe, go north of Monroe about 3 miles. 14 is a bit busy and hilly. You will find county road F62 going east to Reasnor and Montezuma. Stay on that road to Iowa City. It changes from F62 to F57, Hwy 85, F52. But its the same road. You will hit Sully, Lynnville, Searsboro, Montezuma, Deep River, Millersburg, Parnell, Holbrook, then go south to Frytown. There will be a road north to Cosgrove and a road south to Frytown. Go south. In Frytown get on F62 again and go east to Hills, West Liberty, Atalissa, Moscow, Wilton, Durant, Stockton, Walcott and finally the Quad Cities (Bettendorf and Davenport on the Iowa side of the river). There are some hills on this route. Parts of Iowa are flat, part are not.
