Prairie Pedal Details
This event will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29. You’ll want to be there bright and early at 7 a.m., and you can expect to ride until around 2 p.m. The Prairie Pedal will begin at 3939 Nearing Lane in Decatur, Illinois, so mark the date, time, and location down in your calendar so you know where to go.
You will have to remember to register for this event. It costs $30 per rider, regardless of how long you are riding. You will get a free T-shirt when you register, but if you would prefer a moisture-wicking t-shirt, you can pay $10 extra for that when you make your purchase.
Ride in the Prairie
There are a lot of beautiful places to ride your bike, but it’s hard to beat the natural beauty of the local prairie. When you come on this ride, you will have a few different options to choose from, including a 20-, 40-, or 62-mile ride. Your choice will likely depend on your specific preferences and whether you want something more casual or a bit more challenging.
Enjoy a Meal to Finish Your Ride
After you get done biking, you will probably be pretty hungry. Luckily, you are invited to join in on a chili lunch that comes with a variety of refreshments. Don’t worry – there are veggie options available too, so everyone can eat together.
