ROUTE INFORMATION 

Are you ready to ride the scenic roads of the  Illinois River Valley?

Let's do this. 

THE 35 

SUGGESTED START WINDOW

6:30 AM TO 10:30 AM

For our 35th Anniversary, we have introduced “The 35”. If you have never ridden 35 miles in your life, this may be the perfect goal for you. Thirty-five miles through gentle farmland is a perfect way to lift your spirits and get your Sunday off to the perfect start.

THE 50

SUGGESTED START WINDOW

6:30 AM TO 10:30 AM

So, you ride more than your friends. Your Facebook page features several pictures of your sweaty self, riding the bike trails and back roads of your community. You’re up for a challenge, but you also have things to do.  Try “The 50”. It’s the perfect for people who ride regularly and are looking to dip their toes into the century lifestyle.

THE 70

SUGGESTED START WINDOW

6:30 AM TO 9:30 AM

Maybe time constraints don’t allow you to prepare for a century. Maybe you like to work your way up to bigger challenges. Maybe you’re European and you like more of a metric feel to your century rides, well this is for you. It’s “The 70”. This is a real test of endurance for cyclists, it is definitely not "just a ride". This distance takes training and commitment, but not as much as a century.

Are you game?

THE CENTURY

SUGGESTED START WINDOW

6:30 AM TO 8:00 AM

Yes, the hun-doe, the badge of honor amongst people of your kind. It’s a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. Hills, sweat, a little pain and lots of good times, if you’re doing the century, you’re either an experienced cyclist or you’ve done a lot research and training. Either way, good luck and go for it!

124 MILES

SUGGESTED START WINDOW

6:30 AM TO 8:00 AM

You’ve done a Century, why stop now.

Show off!
