2023 Beautiful Southern Bike Ride

April 1, 2023

  • The Beautiful Southern Ride is a Charity Ride. Choose from a 30, 62, or 75 mile ride starting and ending at the Carbondale Middle School (CMS). Restrooms are available at the school but there are no shower facilities. All routes go through the hills and plains of beautiful southern Illinois, including Giant City State Park and Makanda to the south, the edge of Crab Orchard Wildlife Refuge to the east, and Elkville to the north. We've improved the ride based on the feedback from our riders.

  • Entry fee: $25 per person.
