The Central Illinois Bicycle Touring is a cycling group based in Peoria, IL. While the goal for this group is to provide opportunities for people to get involved in bicycle touring, there will be plenty of plain old riding going on as well.
We are happy to welcome any and all levels of experience and interest to our group. Our members have many different experiences with touring and bring all kinds of differing opinions and expertise to the group.
Join us to meet other bicycle enthusiasts and to have some great two-wheeled adventures!
These 3 trails intersect in the Chicago western suburbs.
They are located in a triangle in the St Charles, Elgin, Wheaton and Forest Park area.
There are lots of miles of great trails.
Ideally, this would be an overnight event
but the logistics of an overnight are more complicated.
There are plenty of hotels and a great campground in the area.
It can also work as a day event by doing an individual trail.
But, we would leave just wanting for more.
My thought is to do it in April if the weather is good otherwise in May or June.

This site stimulates you to ride. I'd like to gauge the interest or not in doing a group ride to these great rail trails. Please let us know whether or not you are interested.
