This is the route for the 2017 Prickly Pedal. I downloaded this from the website and am using it as a ride plan for this weekend. Pre-riding ... never a bad thing, amIright?

Trail is in good condition, although about a half mile of intermittent sand between miles 7-9. However, beware the area around mile 6-7, it's a popular with shooters. On Friday 11/24 a group was firing semi automatic rounds in the direction of the trail from about 500 feet to the west. When a bullet whizzed close by our heads, we called the Peoria PD with the intent of getting them to come out and let these people know that the trail is there.
