"Ride the Sauk" is a free, family 10-mile group bike ride and festival hosted by the Village of Richton Park. “Ride the Sauk” is an inaugural event being held on Saturday, May 13, at 11 a.m. at Walmart, in Richton Park.
The event is open to all ages, but is recommended for individual riders of at least 11 years of age. In addition to bringing their own bikes, all riders are urged to wear safety helmets and to bring drinking water.
Pre-registered riders will be able to check in at 10:30 a.m. at the event. The first 100 pre-registered riders to check in will receive a free T-shirt. (Please note that size choice is not guaranteed.) All pre-registered riders will also be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a bicycle.
All riders must set out on the trail by 11a.m.
Riders will head northward on Central Avenue, connecting to the Old Plank Trail which will take riders to Main Street. Riders will then connect to Sauk Trail which will be used to return riders to the starting point at Walmart.
Additional family-friendly festivities, including music, food and face painting will continue after the ride.
