May is the perfect time to hop on your bike and go for a ride. The weather here in Taylorville is usually in the 60s or 70s at this time of year – just right for biking. The Lincoln Prairie Bike Trail is just 6 blocks from our Taylorville Illinois hotel; start here, and ride 15 miles to Pana on the paved old railroad bed. You’ll bike through lovely prairie land that is sprinkled with rivers and streams. The Market Street Inn will provide a sack lunch for you for your ride on one of the longest paved trails south of the Chicago area.
Once you arrive in the City of Pana, there are many things to do. Wander through the historic downtown and admire the lovely architecture that ranges from Victorian to Art Deco. Sit in a cafe and restore yourself with a cup of coffee. Visit the Coal Creek Pioneer Village, complete with restored log cabins original to the area.
We offer a “Bike the Lincoln Prairie Bike Trail” special at our bed and breakfast Illinois. There is a Weekend Package and a Weekday Package, both of which include a dinner gift certificate. Our generous breakfasts will energize you before your ride, and your private whirlpool tub will wash away any aches and pains aft your ride.
