Scenes from Ride

About the Ride

Amishland 2017 is over and it was a wonderful day of cycling. The weather forecast was very positive and the actual weather delivered. It was sunny and not too hot. Lakeland High School was again a great location for the ride with ample parking, great shower facilities and a great post-ride meal with live music from Acoustic Justice. Thank you to all who participated and a huge thank you to the volunteers who work before and during the ride to try to make Amishland and Lakes the best ride possible.

Amishland and Lakes, based at Lakeland High School in LaGrange, Indiana is a one day bike tour of the Amish countryside and lakes of northeast Indiana.

The Amishland and Lakes bicycle tour visits a world where lifestyles have remained almost unchanged for over a hundred years. The routes range from 22 to 100 miles, offering smooth, quiet roads, where buggies are numerous and cars are few. There are wide open spaces, clean country air, friendly people and lots of great food. There is plenty to explore, experience and eat. Amishland and Lakes is famous for great SAG food (watermelons, peaches, blueberries, bananas and fresh baked cookies), and there are Amish bakeries, restaurants and homemade ice cream parlors along the route for riders who want to sample local "home cooking".
