The 39th annual Folks on Spokes Easter Ride is a one-day bicycle tour sponsored by the Folks on Spokes Bicycle Club, an Illinois not for profit organization.  Since 1982 this ride has grown in popularity despite sometimes imperfect spring weather, and draws hundreds of riders each year. The longer routes follow lightly traveled paved roads and a few miles of paved trail. The shorter routes are mostly on paved trails. All routes are clearly marked. Routes range in distance from 12 to 62 miles. The Easter Ride was listed as the Best Biking in America in Bicycling Magazine’s April 1999 issue and we hope to continue to be among the best as Spring Fling!
