2014 Ride the Rivers Century Lodging


2014 Ride the Rivers Century Lodging


If you've been watching Trailnet’s Facebook posts you have seen that we have set our 2014 Ride the Rivers Century date. In 2014 the ride will be almost a full month earlier than it was in 2013. The date is Sunday, September 21, 2014.

The location of the ride has also changed. Beautiful Pere Marquette Park is our new start location. For those of you who may be interested in staying in a hotel room or cabin at Pere Marquette we have some information for you.

We were told on January 31 that all of their available rooms are booked for Friday, September 19 and Sunday, September 21. Obviously, their rooms sell out fast and far in advance. We were told that they had 61 available rooms (including cabin rooms) for Saturday, September 20. The rate is $149 per night. They told us they will “absolutely” sell that date out, probably within the next week.

Click here to go to Pere Marquette’s website. Their phone number is 618.786.2331. Camping may be an alternative there if you’d like to discuss that with them.

Other hotel options in the Grafton area are the Rubel Hotel, 618.786.2315 and the Grafton Inn, 618.786.2222.

If you haven't “liked” that page yet, you may want to so that you'll receive updates about the ride as soon as we post them.

Our 2014 Calendar of Rides will be available at our  Beans, Bikes & Brews party on March 8 and in our members' mailboxes around March 10.
