Send a link to a friend

[March 25, 2009]  For three years now, the Lincoln Circuit Ride has brought motorcyclists and other Lincoln enthusiasts in cars along the old 8th Judicial Circuit that Abraham Lincoln rode as a lawyer. At the various courthouses where Abe practiced, local historians give entertaining examples of what Mr. Lincoln did in those communities. This has been recognized as an excellent melding of history and a contemporary road event. The 2009 Lincoln Circuit Ride celebrates the Lincoln Bicentennial year on four different Sundays to complete the entire 250-mile circuit.

The first weekend begins in Springfield on April 26 at 9 a.m. at Eighth and Capitol, just north of Lincoln's Home. Registration will begin at 8 a.m.
  • April 26 -- Departing from Springfield and ending at the McLean-Logan marker

  • June 14 -- Departing from Postville Courthouse in Lincoln at 9 a.m. and ending at the Piatt-Champaign marker

  • July 19 -- Departing from Carle Park at Urbana at 9 a.m. and ending at the Coles-Shelby County line

  • Sept. 20 -- Departing from Shelby County Courthouse 9 a.m. and ending at the Christian-Sangamon County line marker
