The Rock County parks included on the bike tour include Carver-Roehl, Lee, Pelishek-Tiffany Nature Trail, Schollmeyer, Sweet-Allyn and Turtle Creek Parkway.

People can register the day of the event at Turtle Creek Parkway, 6528 S. Smith Road, Clinton. Cash or check will be accepted.

The cost is $20 for an individual or $35 for a family. The cost includes an $8 food coupon for Shopiere Tap and two coupons for the family rate.

Refreshments will be available at Carver Roehl and at the headquarters at the five-arch bridge.

President of Friends of Rock County Parks Dean Paynter said he is expecting 30-50 people to the event.

"It's getting people to see the five-arch bridge, but also letting people know about the other county parks in the southwest corner of Rock County," Paynter said.

He said there will be options of various routes, ranging from the shortest which is a four to five mile route up to a tour of all six parks which is 36 miles.

Carl Lange laid out routes and organized the event.

No rain is scheduled and organizers are hoping many will see all the beauty Rock County has to offer.

"If get people get their ride in the morning, they will have a good day," Paynter said.
