David Knapp, right, and Eric Coher, both of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, traverse a road through Giant City State Park on Saturday near Makanda.

The two men were participating in the 75-mile ride of the 2017 Beautiful Southern Bike Ride.

Cape Girardeau resident Bryan Walker, who also attended the event and rides multiple times a week, said this was his first time taking part in this particular ride.


“I’ve never been in this part of Illinois and I’ve heard it was beautiful so I came up and wanted to kind of check it out,” Walker said. “[Riding through Giant City] is beautiful. It’s just nice rolling hills.”
