Eagles Nest Dual-Sport Ride for wounded warriors ( Northern Illinois)

Alright here is the low down on this event. On Aug. 3rd the American Legion is having their Annual Sauerkraut Day Supper which started in 1913, in addition there will also be a car and bike show going on at the Forreston Grade School. This we will our 1st year attempting an organized ride to raise money for wounded soldier's returning home. This will not be a poker (bar hopping) run instead we will be making stops at business’s, dead end roads and points of interests.

At these stops we will have important dates in American history written down on a yellow ribbon and when you return back to Forreston Grade School turn in your form (we supply) and get a raffle ticket for every date wrote down. Then sit back grab a brat or hot dog load it up with Sauerkraut and hope your lucky number comes up. This is not a race or a group ride, that being said we will have a couple bikes going out at different times that know the route and you can follow them. Northern Illinois has some of the best gravel roads around and it has been hard to keep the ride miles down because of all the great roads and because of this we may have two routes. One for those who may get a late start and one with a bit more miles. Registration will begin at 7am with the 1st bike out at 8am last bike out at 9am.

All proceeds go to helping wounded soldiers. The cost is $25.00 (includes meal @ Sauerkraut Dinner & ride decal).

This is a big bike friendly ride that will take you past an Eagles nest or two. There will be a creek crossing hopefully two. 80% of the ride will be gravel roads. *Prize Drawings to be held following the ride and there will be a GPS Bonus Treasure Hunt Prize.

The Illinois Fallen Heroes Traveling Memorial Wall will be at the Eagle Nest Dual Sport Ride. There will be a 50/50 raffle, gun raffle and raffle prizes that day to benefit Veterans and the Wounded Warrior Project. Please come out and enjoy a brat or hot dog with Sauerkraut check out the cool cars and Bikes, explore the great back roads of Northern Illinois on the Dual-Sport Ride, support the Veterans and most importantly honor those brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Thank you!

Hi can we get a general idea of miles on your routes? I love the cause but don't expect to make it. Talk me into it.

I believe that the route is around 120 - 150 miles. I'll have to double check the map. There are some nice gravel roads. We should have a creek crossing ( weather permitting) and there is an unmaintained road section that is pretty fun.

LittleJohn, That would be great. It is both big bike and thumped friendly. As far as 2 up, 90% can be done and you could probably go around the rough stuff. I'm in St Louis right now. I'll get a flyer coming to ya. Thanks again.
