Description

Join Congressman Schneider in a fun ride through parts of Illinois’s 10th Congressional District. This ride is open to bike riders from throughout the district who want to ride along. There are two stops along the route. The group will take two 20 minute breaks at these stops. This is an opportunity to talk directly with Congressman Schneider about issues of concern.

Still want to participate but not interested in riding? Join us at the two stops during the ride breaks for conversation.
