Lincoln Park District will host a
family-oriented, noncompetitive bike
tour of Logan County on Aug. 20. Participants will leave from the park
district facilities on Primm Road between 8 and 8:30 a.m. Sag
support will be offered along the route, as well as a bicycle inspection
before the trip.
There will be two well-marked routes. The longer route is nearly 30
miles, and the shorter route is approximately 20 miles. Winding
through the country, with Elkhart as the farthest stop, the longer
route will return through Broadwell and finish back at the Lincoln
Park District headquarters. Scenic Logan County, downtown Elkhart, Route 66 and
the Pig Hip Museum, along with some historic Lincoln-related sites,
are featured in the plans.
Water, fruit, restrooms and cooling
areas will be provided at Elkhart and Broadwell. Additional items
will be available for purchase. Plans are to include a light
lunch before you have the opportunity to go swimming.
The cost is $15 per person or $35 per family. A daily pool-use
pass is included.
