Lincoln Circuit Ride
WHO: Everyone
DETAILS: Join ABATE of Illinois on the 2008 Lincoln Circuit Ride, riding the same roads, visiting the county line markers where Abe crossed into each county and visiting the same courthouses where he practiced law on the Old 8ith Judicial Circuit around 1850. A bus tour will accompany the motorcycles and other vehicles. Presentations will be made along the way by local historians at the markers and historic sites. The ride is in two parts: April 26-27 and Oct. 11-12.
The first weekend starts in Springfield, with registration beginning at 8 am April 26. After a tour of Lincoln's Home, the group will leave at 9 am from Eighth and Capitol, just north of the home. The tour will stop at each county line marker on the way from Sangamon County to the Metamora Historic Courthouse for presentations and lunch. The afternoon will be spent traveling to Postville Courthouse, visiting the county line markers along the way, and the day will end at Lincoln's Holiday Inn Express after several presentations. On Sunday the group will travel to Mount Pulaski Courthouse, Clinton Courthouse, DeWitt for lunch and Monticello Courthouse, stopping at each county line marker along the way and ending at the marker on Piatt-Champaign County line.
The second half of the circuit will begin Oct. 11 in Champaign, at Carle Park. Travel will be along the Lincoln Road toward Danville and then on to Paris Courthouse, Charleston Courthouse and lunch, and Shelbyville, where the group will spend the night at The Shelby Inn. The route will follow many old roads and visit the county line markers along the way. On Sunday the group will head to Sullivan, Decatur and Taylorville, ending at the Christian-Sangamon County line marker.
The cost is $10 per person per weekend. There will be an additional cost for the bus accompanying the tour. Visit for more details. For further information, contact Rose Connolly at 217-891-8719.
