Weekly Club Rides

Join club members Sunday afternoons for weekly rides. 

Rides start from the Shell station on the east end of Fulton, unless otherwise noted. We will leave at 1:00 P.M. and ride 30 - 35 miles.   We will not leave anyone stranded, as we usually make stops during the ride to keep everyone somewhat together. We are not racers just riders who have fun riding our bicycles together. In case of rain or inclement weather the ride is cancelled.

Routes for weekly club rides vary from riding on the Great River Trail to exploring scenic, low-traffic country roads in Illinois.  Destinations in Illinois include Savanna, Morrison, Erie and Cordova.   

Icicle Bicycle

The  Icicle Bicycle Ride is a popular way to start the cycling season.  The March 18, 2017 ride has participants riding on the Great River Trail from Clinton to Thomson, IL.

The ride begins at Happy Joe’s Pizza parlor at 408 South First Street in Clinton. The 28-mile route will take riders along the Clinton Riverfront to the bike path and over the Mississippi River via the north Bridge. Riders will be given the option of traveling north to Thomson, IL along the Great River Trail or a more scenic route along the Mississippi River dike, past Fulton’s authentic Dutch windmill. A sag stop will be located in Thomason, where riders can enjoy refreshments.

Lunch will be provided at Happy Joe’s after the ride. Enjoy a delicious buffet, visit with fellow riders and get in on the door prizes.

Registration is located at 408 South First Street, inside the Clinton Happy Joe's Pizza Parlor, between 10:00 a.m. and Noon.  $20 pre-registration fee, $25 at the door includes sag stop refreshments & buffet lunch at Happy Joe's PLUS numerous door prizes!
