June TRIRI® Bicycle Rally at Lincoln & Harmonie State Parks
June 15-20, 2014


June TRIRI® Rally Preview

TRIRI® Bicycle Rallies explore Indiana through a series of loop rides from one or two state parks. Stay at a beautiful, modern Indiana State Park inn, a motel, or camp.

Join us at Lincoln & Harmonie State Parks for our fourth annual bicycle rally, Sunday, June 15-Friday, June 20. Partial week (three-day) registration will be available. Routes will will focus on historical sites.

Lincoln State Park connects visitors with the childhood of Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States. The 1,747-acre park offers two lakes and ten miles of hiking trails. At this location, campers will stay at the Pine Hills Group Camp, and non-campers will have rooms at the Quality Inn Huntingburg. All participants (campers and non-campers) will eat breakfasts and dinners in the Pine Hills Group Camp dining hall. Lean more about Lincoln State Park.

Harmonie State Park is just a few miles outside the town of New Harmony, another site of historical significance in southwestern Indiana. New Harmony evolved from two utopian communities of the early 1800s: the Rappites and the Owenites. At this location, campers will stay in an area near the Maple Grove picnic shelter; non-campers will have rooms at the New Harmony Inn. All participants (campers and non-campers) will eat breakfasts and dinners at the New Harmony Conference Center. Learn more about Harmonie State Park and the town of New Harmony.

Terrain ranges from rolling to hilly with some challenging hills. Routes are still being finalized; routes and mileage are subject to change. Elevation numbers will be posted at a later date.

Five breakfasts and five dinners are included; the first meal provided on the rally is dinner Sunday evening. Menus are carefully planned for nutrition and variety, and include options for vegetarian and diabetic participants. Served in the park inns, TRIRI® meals offer lots of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as multiple entrees and sides. Furthermore, we do not run out of food!
