Freedom By Choice Chapter, ABATE of Illinois covers Macon County.  Our monthly chapter meetings are held the 2nd Sunday of every month starting at 1:00 p.m. at the chapter 17 DAV in Decatur, unless other wise announced.

If you ride, you need to find out what we are all about. It doesn't matter how much you ride or what kind of bike you ride. Come out to a meeting and see what we're all about.  All riders are welcome.  It doesn't matter if you ride a Goldwing, Harley or even a Ural.  Cruisers, touring bikes, sport bikes, dirt bikes, scooters, it just doesn't matter. If you ride, you need to belong to ABATE of Illinois. Your riding freedoms depend on all of us riders working to save our freedoms. If you wait till after we have lost our freedoms to worry about them, it will be too late. Join us now to help save Illinois riding freedoms.  You'll be welcome.  If you have any questions pertaining to Freedom By Choice Chapter, please feel free to contact us.
