Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
If you are interested in participating in a ride, let us know! If there is a certain day that works best for you, we would love to hear it. We want to organize rides that the most people can take part in.
|Sundays||1:30 pm||Road ride starting from the store at 1:30. This ride is 30+ miles. The store will be open at 1:00 for all your needs before the ride starts. Helmets are required.||Decatur Bicycle Shoppe||217-875-3271|
|Every Monday (weather permitting)||6:15 pm||Weekly mountain bike ride. We will be riding the single track trails at Garman Park as long as the trail is dry. Make sure you bring your helmet and some form of hydration.||Horace B. Garman Park||217-875-3271|
|Every Monday (weather permitting)||6:30 pm||New for 2018! This is a leisurely hybrid/comfort bike ride that mostly rides on the bike trail, possibly stopping for coffee or a treat. This ride is great if you are brand new to riding or just looking for a fun thing to do with your family.||Fairview Dog Park||217-875-3271|
|Every Thursday||6:00 pm||Weekly mixed terrain ride starting and ending at the shop. You'll see a mix of pavement and gravel on this one. So bring a bike that can handle some gravel! Please meet at the store at 6:00 with your bike and helmet. Pace and distance is set by the riders (usually about 20 miles).||Decatur Bicycle Shoppe||217-875-3271|
|Every Saturday (in season)||8:00 am||We meet at the north end of the Rock Springs Trail (off of Green Oak Dr by Greendell Park) and ride to Rock Springs and back. The average speed depends on who shows up (usually there are two groups, one faster than the other), so do not be scared you will hold everyone up!||Rock Springs Trail off of Green Oak Dr.||217-875-3271|
These will be occuring on Saturday mornings throughout the season. Feel free to email or call us to ask when the next one is and what it covers.
If there are any clinics that you would like us to do, let us know!
