This is a moderately challenging 400k from Woodstock with a few hills at the start. We head west to Oregon on some flattish roads to build up a time buffer, then north up through Pecatonica to Brodhead then New Glarus. You can take the Sugar River Trail if you don't mind a gravel/hard pack trail (the GPS takes the roads) from Brodhead to New Glarus but beware - 2 riders have broken bikes on this trail (a fender and a rear derailleur). From there we head east back through Evansville and Milton before heading south through Darien and back to Woodstock.
This is an official PBP qualifier.
For your safety, we require a helmet, lights, and reflective gear. You will be riding for some time in the dark. The start is at the Quality Inn & Suites, Woodstock, Illinois.
Guests: First Ride Free!
