  • Overview

      In its 6th winter, this monthly bike ride series in Plainfield by the Friends of the Vandalia Trail ( is held on one Saturday morning each month, November-March. Whether you're a regular cold weather rider or would like to try it for the first time, come on out and enjoy a relaxed opportunity to embrace winter, try out your cold weather gear and exchange strategies on staying warm on the bike.

      Our gathering point is behind Biggby's Coffee and the Metro Diner and in front of Meijer, convenient for a hot drink before and a warm breakfast and shopping after. We'll ride on the nearby Vandalia Trail, just recently extended to 7 miles long, and the intersecting White Lick Creek Trail, then return for breakfast. The planned distance is 10 miles, but the out-&-back route and Plainfield's extensive trail system makes it easy to adjust the length depending on the group and conditions. In the past, ride temperatures have ranged from 11 to 45 degrees and conditions have ranged from dry to snow-covered. Riders participate at their own risk. Minors must be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them. If icy conditions exist or if it is raining, the ride will be canceled.
