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 family of JCS Heroes.

The JCS Bike for Heroes ride offers three different routes in distances of ~25 miles, 50 miles, or 80 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-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.

Refresh yourself with a stop at Lisa’s Market Street Grille on historic Market Street if you desire.

Come enjoy a leisurely pace with family and friends, or bring your time trial bike and come eat up the pavement. This ride is suitable for all skill levels.

This is a St. Louis based charity.  Check out the heroes who have benefitted and learn more about the JCS Charity here.

If you plan to attend, let me know too, I would love to know.   Thank you for your support!   Karen Einig -  msmodo
