  • Look for the silver Honda Civic with the bike rack - and a group of good looking cyclists ;-)
  • Join us for a ride on these beautiful paved and crushed limestone rail-trails located in one of the most rural areas of Boone County, providing a peaceful ride through a countryside of gently rolling hills and small farms. Plan on a rolling speed of 11-14 mph and an approximate round-trip distance of 46 miles; we'll refuel in Rockton before our return trip to Capron.


    Please arrive a few minutes early so you are ready to ride at 8:30 am. I will email my cell phone number to all riders who have RSVPed "Yes" by the night before the ride - you can contact me up until 8:30 am if you're lost, can't find the group, etc.
