Come join us and tour the flat farmlands of the Mississippi valley heading south out of Columbia, Illinois with views of the bluffs as we support our adopted Heroes. Registration opens at 6:00 A.M. with a group start at 7:00 A.M.
The 2023 JCS Bike for Heroes ride offers five different routes in distances of 10 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles, 80 miles, and 100 miles. There will be several rest stops 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 and 100 mile routes extend through 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.
