DECATUR — The annual Prairie Pedal combines an opportunity for scenic bike rides and supporting natural areas and wildlife in Macon County.
The Prairie Pedal fundraiser will be held this year on Sunday, Sept. 29, at Rock Springs Conservation Area. Proceeds help fund natural areas in the community, something that ensures clean air and water, as well as opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Bicyclists who participate get to choose between three routes along scenic country roads that begin and end at Rock Springs Conservation Area. Options include a 20, 40 or 62 mile route. Riders participating in the 40 or 62 mile route can begin between 7 and 9 a.m. and 20 mile participants can begin between 7 and 10 a.m.
You have free articles remaining.
All participants will receive a Prairie Pedal t-shirt and will be served a chili lunch afterwards. Rest stops and support vehicles to assist riders will be available.
The cost is $30 per rider. Anyone who registers on or before Sept. 12 can participate for a discount at $25 per rider. Information on how to register can be found at MaconCountyConservationFoundation.org.
