+- Sun, 06/07/2015 - Fri, 06/12/2015 Touring Ride in Rural Indiana® Bicycle Rally Mitchell,Indiana
June is limestone month in Indiana, and in 2015 our host parks are located within the borders of the Salem limestone deposit in south central Indiana. Routes will feature limestone architecture, sculptures and working quarries, and riders will have the opportunity to visit the Monroe County History Center's limestone exhibit. Spring Mill State Park is known for its restored Pioneer Village, built in 1814. The village of 20 buildings contains a three-story working limestone gristmill constructed in 1817. The park also offers numerous hiking trails and caves, including Twin Caves Boat Tour. Just 12 miles west of the lively university town of Bloomington, McCormick's Creek State Park is known for hiking trails that feature a huge limestone canyon and the abandoned historic Statehouse Quarry.
