Join us for Prairie Pedal:
Sunday, September 24, 2023
Choose from a 20 mile, 40 mile, or 62 mile ride on quiet Macon County country roads. You’ll see vibrant prairie grasses, wildflowers, and likely spot some wildlife as you ride. After the ride, enjoy a tasty chili lunch (with vegetarian option) and an assortment of refreshments. This year, Door 4 Brewing Co. will be joining us once again with beer for purchase during lunch. All routes begin and end at Rock Springs Conservation Area, 3939 Nearing Lane, Decatur, IL.
Support vehicles will be monitoring the routes, and available to help riders in need of assistance during the event. Priority will be given to riders in emergency situations due to illness, injury, or irreparable breakdowns. All riders must wear a bicycle helmet. Parental supervision is required for children. The ride takes place on public roads where other motorists are present.
