About This Activity

Prairie Pedal is an annual fall fundraising event for Macon County Conservation Foundation.  All proceeds support the conservation of natural areas and wildlife diversity in Macon County, Illinois.

Enjoy the 62 mile, 40 mile, or 20 mile rides through the quiet roads of Macon County countryside and have a chance to discover the vibrant prairie grasses, wildflowers, and diverse wildlife as we ride for restoration!

After the ride join the Macon County Conservation Foundation for a chili lunch (with vegetarian option) and an assortment of refreshments.  All routes begin and end at the Rock Springs Conservation Area, 3939 Nearing Lane, Decatur, IL.

Register through, or through our website or on the day of the event.
