I recently purchased a Trek 520 and have been waiting for a chance to take it out for an overnight shakedown ride. This ride will be on paved country roads with rolling terrain but nothing exceptionally challenging. This is Illinois after all. We will stop for breaks in two Conservation District Sites and end with camping overnight at Marengo Ridge Conservation District site which has a resident fee of $15 to camp. My wife and son will join me for most of the ride. This will be a pleasant way to get a feel for my new bike and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Northern Illinois.
Registration for this event is currently closed. Check back soon for the launch of Bicycle Travel Weekend for 2021!
