About the event

COVID-19 note: ¡Pick Me Up! was held in 2020-2022 and is anticipated to go forward in accordance with any COVID-19 health orders in September 2023.

This is a long-distance, nighttime, gravel ride. Don't miss this unique experience!

There will be three ride options: 25 mile (Belleville), 40 mile (Monticello), and 80 mile (Illinois state line and back), all gravel/dirt trail bike ride beginning at nightfall, except for short detours around the closed Stewart Tunnel and the fire-damaged Round Grove Road bridge.

This ride is on the Badger State Trail. Riders are responsible for their own state trail passes.
