Vintage & Steel Bike Ride

ride update graphicVintage & Steel Bike Ride: Shore Acres Park, Sat Oct 1 at 8:30am, Rain date on Oct 8

This is a chance to ride with fellow vintage & steel bike enthusiasts and perhaps show off the pride of your fleet! It’s intended to be a medium speed ride along quiet rural roads north of Peoria, IL.. nothing too serious, and no drops.

The ride will start & finish at Shore Acres Park, 100 Park Blvd, Chillicothe. Meet in the parking area adjacent to the swimming pool. Distance of the ride will be approx. 41 miles no drop. Mid ride destination and break will be at Tanner’s Orchard in Speer as they will serve baked goods, hot cocoa, coffee, water. Plenty of apples and cider will be available but you will want to bring a pannier or a big carradice to carry it home. Fortunately, it’s mostly downhill ride home. Contact Steve Kurt for more info. (kurtsj@mtco.com)

Support: This is an unsupported ride. Bring your own food and water. Be prepare to handle any mechanical issues that might occur.
