Ride Atop 10,000 ft. Elevation On This Memorial Day Weekend Bike Ride

Freeport, Illinois — May 26, 2017 — The Freeport Bicycle Company is always planning rides for members of the community. This Sunday they are planning a trip you won’t want to miss.

The MidWest is often thought of as a vast, flat mass of land punctuated by endless fields of corn and soybeans. Though that is fairly accurate, there exists an area untouched by the glacial advances that have left much of North Central America with the dull landscape we call home. This area is the Driftless.

Ten Thousand will be 120-ish miles and roughly 10,000ft. of elevation gain with gorgeous views atop high ridges, thrilling descents into river valleys, and astonishingly difficult climbs that’ll put even a mountain dwelling cyclist in pain.

Sunday at 9 AM
