This year, Bicycle Friendly Farmington is hosting the 4th annual bicycle ride in memory of Kevin Adorno with a different format — choose your ride at your own distance up to 100 kilometers (62.5 miles)! The ride is all on multi-use paved trails, and distances will be marked for every 10-mile segment — bring the whole family, challenge yourself, and then turn around when you’ve achieved your personal goal! A 62.5 mile road option has been added to the lineup for those wanting to avoid the constraints of the trail. Start times for various distances will be staggered. There is no charge for this event, but your donations are welcome. After your ride, enjoy some refreshments and live music courtesy of Downright Music of Collinsville.
Route Options and Suggested Starting Times (safety instructions will be presented every 1/2 hour) Plan to return between 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. to enjoy refreshments and players from Downright Music.
