Bike For Heroes
July 21, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm
Come join us on the third annual Bike for Heroes as we tour the flat farmlands of the Mississippi valley heading south out of Columbia, Illinois with majestic views of the bluffs as we support our adopted Heroes.
The JCS Bike for Heroes ride offers four different routes in distances of 10, 25, 50, or 80 miles with several rest stops stocked with snacks, drinks, and facilities available for your convenience. On the 25 and 50 mile routes, you will travel the flat farmlands and enjoy views of the Missouri and Illinois river bluffs.
The 80-mile route extends to Prairie Du Rocher, Illinois where you will ride alongside bluffs and pass Fort De Chartres. Built in 1753, this site marks the location of the last of four successive French forts built during the colonization of the Illinois Country.
Put a team together or come join others and ride to support our most severely wounded soldiers and Marines who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. This ride is suitable for all skill levels.
