The Corn Fest Bike Rally is a classic family event in DeKalb. The ride starts at Lions Park in DeKalb and follows the trail system all the way to South Prairie School in Sycamore, an 18mi round trip. Riders must wear helmets and are expected to mind the rules of the road at all intersections. The DeKalb Police will be available to help at busy intersections, but the course is not closed and riders must ride responsibly.
Registration will begin at Lions Park at 8am on Sunday, August 26th. This is a free event open to the public. Riders ride at their own risk and will be asked to sign a waiver.
The ride will begin at 10am and riders will ride at their own pace. At South Prairie School, refreshments will be provided. Water will be provided by Northern Illinois Waterworks of DeKalb.
