Friends create their own Z Tour

Several friends from the Dixon area decided to create their own Z Tour on July 11. This photo, taken by Cecille Gerber, captures the moment after they had puffed their way up the Cemetery Hill west of Tiskilwa and had paused to regroup. One couple decided to celebrate their 33rd wedding anniversary by bicycling 33 miles, and they persuaded a few friends to come along for the ride. This upbeat group said they’ve labeled themselves the “Pandemic Pedalers.”
