Does "PACRACC" still exist?(2 posts)

Does "PACRACC" still exist?MisJG

I posted this on the "Rides" board and got no response, so I am re-posting it here.
I used to do a ride called PACRACC (Pantagraph Area Cyclists Ride Around Corn Country) in central Illinois (Bloomington/Normal area) years ago. I was wondering if it still exists? Would love to take my wife as a way to convince her to do RAGBRAI.

Sorry, but PACRACC has ceased to exist for several years now, not sure of the exact date. The local paper (Pantagraph) was losing money due to decreasing registrations. The local club tried to give it a go, but was unsuccessful. I rode from 91 to 95, were you there those years? A good ride similar to RAGBRAI but on a rather smaller scale is TRIRI (Touring Ride In Rural Indiana). 7 days, ~350-400 miles, 3rd week in June I think. I live in PACRACC country, Normal, and always enjoyed that weekend. I get a lot of people asking if the ride will be resurrected, but, alas.
