This annual bike ride is hosted by the Illinois Valley Wheelm'n Bicycle Club, which take you on a tour of Central Illinois's rolling terrain. NBR will be at the same starting location as last year at the Morton Park District's Freedom Hall. Choose your distance - 20 mi, 45 mi, 65 mi (metric century) or 100 mi (imperial century). The routes are well supported with food stops. Each food stop will have a different menu, which will be posted on the website prior to the ride. I can guarantee No Baloney sandwiches will be serve.
