Folks On Spokes invites you to come out and join us on either a 47 mile or 62 mile ride in length that will take you by 17 barn quilts in Kankakee County on great roads. The shorter ride goes by 11 barn quilts
The ride starts at Willowhaven Nature Preserve in Kankakee county, starts away from traffic and takes you on a pleasant journey through Grant Park, Momence, Aroma Park and back to Willowhaven.
There will be plenty of places to fill your water bottles and your stomach should the need to feed hits which I'm sure it will.
The route is fairly flat with just a couple of grades so you can make sure your derailleurs still work.
Start time will be at 8:00 AM promptly leaving, weather dependent .
The first barn quilt is located at Willowhaven Nature Preserve and then the rest are scattered along the route
Then there are 2 more shed quilts (shed quilts are scaled down versions, just as nice but a tad smaller) just outside of Grant park for those that want just a few more miles on an out and back to the route.
Food and drink for purchase can be expected in Grant park mile 21, Momence at mile 37 then also in Aroma Park at mile 48.5 and then again at mile 55.5
You even get to ride past Mt Langham on the route.
The barn quilts make this wonderful addition to the barns we have out there.
This is a free ride and limited to 50 riders and fills up fast.
Being a free ride there will be no SAG support.
The 47 mile ride goes through 2 towns.
The routes will be marked and maps supplied
