The Chicago Region BMW Owners Association will be having their 2nd annual Illinois State Park ride this Saturday September 26 beginning at Lowden Memorial State Park near Oregon IL. Meet there at 10:00AM for the start of our 2 day ride where we will visit 10 of our state parks and hopefully see some changing colors. Campers will be staying at Kickapoo State Park west of Danville and there are plenty of hotels on the east side of Danville just off of I74. Saturday evening dinner will be at the renowned Beef House in Covington IN, just 15 minutes east of Danville. Dinner is at 7:00PM central and 8:00PM eastern time. Meet for breakfast Sunday morning in the park and consider joining the group for a ride to Rockville IN and visit at least 10 covered bridges and the roads connecting them.
