The Raleigh Illinois Masonic Lodge is sponsoring a bike ride along the Tunnel Hill State Trail on Saturday, Oct. 12.
The ride will start in Harrisburg and travel 34 miles along the trail to Vienna, with an optional "short' ride of 14 miles stopping at Stonefort.
The Masonic Lodge will have several "rest stops" along the route providing free bottled water and granola and energy bars as well as limited technical support for bicycles. Participants must supply their own bicycles and helmets, (helmets are required for the ride).
The Masonic Lodge will also provide an optional free return transportation for riders and their bicycles, returning to the ride start point at Parker Plaza in Harrisburg.
Participants may register on-site the day of the event. Registration fee is $25 and includes a commemorative T-shirt and drawstring style backpack.
