The 45th annual Bike Trip will be a 3 day, 200 mile
cycling and camping trip.



This year is similar to last year as our route will loop through central Illinois as we ride in areas of flat corn fields to places of rolling hills with scenic landscapes. Also new this year is our campsite for the second night at Steiner’s Lake near Astoria. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Day 1 we begin by biking south on the same path as day three from last year. We will camp in Jim Edgar Panther Creek Campground near Chandlerville.
  • Day 2 we explore new territory crossing the Illinois River at Beardstown. We are hoping to arrive for a late lunch at Steiner’s to swim and hang out.
  • Day 3 we will go northeast and cross the Illinois River at Havana. Then we will travel north through Goofy Ridge and then homeward, pulling into NCF with new tan lines and muscles.


The trip begins early Friday morning at 7:00 a.m. and concludes with a meal on Sunday evening at NCF. If you need a bike, we have rentals available. If you have any questions talk to Josh or Brie Litwiller (309-840-0806 – Josh, 309-241-0405 – Brie). We’re looking forward to riding with you!
