Bicycling enthusiasts were treated to a scenic tour of Southern Illinois when more than 125 bikers put the pedal to the medal in the first annual deTour Through Jefferson County. Ensuring those individuals participating in the ride stayed safe and hydrated were team members from our Southern Illinois NovaCare Rehabilitation centers who partnered with Dr. Jeff McIntosh from NOI to sponsor a rest stop for riders.
At the rest stop, the NovaCare staff and Dr. McIntosh provided riders with injury assessments if needed, information about our centers and services offered in the local community and snacks, fruit and water.
Athletes competing in the event were given the option to participate in three different lengths; 60 miles, 30 miles and a 10 mile family ride. Among those participating in the deTour Through Jefferson County was our own Jill Lisk, P.T., from our Mt. Vernon center.
