Sunday, August 2, 2020
Join us again on the Sunday of the first full weekend in August for an enjoyable one-day ride in Kankakee County along two scenic Illinois rivers! Kankakee County boasts both the Kankakee and the Iroquois Rivers, each a treat to see on our many riverside roads. For 2020, we have new routes along the Kankakee River using Kankakee's new Riverfront Trail!
On the ride, you’ll see not only the two rivers, but downtown Kankakee, Kankakee Community College, The Shapiro Clock Tower, barn quilts, two Frank Lloyd Wright homes, border town Momence and its “Island Park”, buffalo, corn and beans, and more! Best of all, minimal traffic!
