Ulmer Ball Park: 503 N. Oak Street, Springfield, United States
The Springfield DDA welcomes you to Downtown Springfield for a scenic bike ride through Effingham County. The Ride will begin and end in Springfield, at Ulmer Park. We've worked hard over the years to help improve downtown Springfield and proceeds from this annual ride have helped to fund facade grants and beautification projects that have made a huge difference. SWAG bags for all participants will include information about stores, restaurants, and events coming up in downtown. We will be raffling off awesome prizes from our Springfield businesses as well. We hope that this will give you a sample of downtown and that you will come back for a visit!
If you’re coming back to our ride again this year- THANK YOU for your continued support. We were unable to host the ride last year, but are excited to do it again this year!
There will be rest stops along the route with restrooms, drinks, and snacks. Water and snacks will be available at registration as well. SAG support will be patrolling the route - Special Thanks to the Effingham Fire Department for providing amazing route support over the years and for coming back to do it again this year. Laminated pocket size route cards will be given to each rider with both a map and a turn by turn direction sheet. We will be providing a small lunch after the race until 1:00pm - Menu TBD and will be sent out in a later email.
