Scenes from Ride

About the Ride


Amishland 2018 is over and it was a wonderful couple of days of cycling. The weather was great and we had a great group of friendly riders and volunteers. Lakeland High School was again a great location for the ride with ample parking, great shower facilities, and delicious pie and ice cream with live music from Acoustic Justice on Saturday at the end of the ride. Many stayed for Sunday's ride either camping at the very convient LaGrange 4-H fairgrounds or nearby accomodations. 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.
We look forward to having many of you return to join new riders at next year's Amishland & Lakes on July 27 & 28, 2019.

Amishland and Lakes, based at Lakeland High School in LaGrange, Indiana is a two 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".
