IDNR Bike History Tours

Ride your own bicycle following a guide on a casual and easy paced bicycle tour of historic sites in the capital city. This neighborhood-style ride will go past historic sites including the Dana-Thomas House, First Black Fires House, Lincoln Home, Old State Capitol, and others. Information will be provided at stops along the route. The five-mile round trip ride will take about 1 ½ hours. Helmets are required and a water bottle is recommended. Meet at the 4th Street Dana-Thomas House Parking Lot.

Please note that in the case of inclement weather (including excessive heat warnings), the tour will be cancelled for guest safety.

Tours will be guided by history education interpreters from the IDNR Office of Land Management, with each tour ranging in duration from one to two hours. Reservations, which will be required, can be made here or through the IDNR website. The capacity of all experiences will be limited and follow health and safety guidelines. All tours are free, and donations in support of local historic sites will be welcomed.
