[MAY 12, 2006]  It's not too late to register for the I Spy Lincoln bike tour, sponsored by the Lincoln Boy Scouts of America Troop 1102. Come out to the YMCA-Odd Fellows gym, 721 Wyatt St., on Saturday to register and begin the tour. All three well-marked routes will take you through the flat to rolling historic lands of Logan County. You will have the opportunity to ride where Abraham Lincoln once walked.

Choose your own adventure from 15-, 30- or 62-mile routes. Rest stops will be available on the 30- and 62-mile routes, complete with snacks, fruit and drinks. The 62-mile route will take you through Lincoln, Broadwell, Elkhart and Mount Pulaski.

Tour riders will have the opportunity to spy Lincoln along the routes, and the riders who see the most sites will become eligible for a prize drawing.

In addition to the bike tour, Safe Kids Logan County will provide a free bike rodeo and bike registration from 1 to 3 p.m., so bring those young riders out to learn bike safety.

Boy Scout Troop 1102 will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner meals as a fundraiser. Breakfast, beginning at 6 a.m., includes biscuits and gravy, coffee, and milk. Lunch will include turkey or ham sandwiches, fruit, chips, and drink. Pre-purchased lunches will be available at a rest stop midway through the 62-mile route. Dinner will be a hamburger or pork sandwich, river fries, and drink.

Sag vehicles will be on the route until 4 p.m. Registration will be $15 per person. Make checks payable to Lincoln BSA Troop 1102. All participants must sign a liability waiver before starting the tour.
