Stagecoach Ride (Guys & Gals welcome)

Howdy! Saddle up yer horses and head out with the Highroad Riders Saturday, September 14th. This is EARLIER than usual (meeting at 7:30 a.m. in Parking Lot D) for a 325 (ish) mile trip that parallels the old stagecoach trails to Galena in the early 19th Century. Men AND women are welcome on this ride. Because this is a longer trip, we will have a few options for those needing to head back earlier to turn tail and bee-line back. First stop is in Byron where we’ll do a short stop at the history museum (stagecoach and underground railroad stop). Then on to Lena for lunch at the Brickhouse. From there, we’ll be on the actual Stagecoach Trail to Galena (although we will blaze on through as parking and traffic is crazy this time of year on a Saturday - remember, we’re all about the ride). Lastly, for those willing and able, we’ll stop by for a quick ride down the Alpine Slide at Chestnut Mountain ($10 per ride - optional event). Just let your sweep know if you’re going to tap out early. Bring a FULL tank - always water your horses every chance you can). Questions? E me at

See you then!! Bandit
