Working in collaboration with Sammy’s Bike Shop of St. Charles, The CVB will promote this special event, due to take place on Sunday, October 8, 2017 – as part of the third and final day of the 32nd annual St. Charles, Illinois Scarecrow Fest.
The rides will begin at Sammy’s Bike Shop, 602 S 1st Street, beginning at 9:00am. Two rides will be offered: A Family Ride of 12-15 miles along the beautiful Fox River, and a Farm Ride cyclist challenge, featuring 38 miles of gorgeous countryside traveling from St. Charles to Maple Park, Illinois.
The cost to participate is free. Water and ice will be on hand to refresh cyclists at the course turnarounds. All riders will need to sign a waiver before participating. Bike rentals are available for $15 during the event or $20 for a full day rental to enjoy during the Fest. Bike racks will also be on hand at Sammy’s for incoming visitors who need a place to secure their cycle while they enjoy the businesses, events and attractions downtown.
