The ride features a delightful route, starting at the Greater Rockton Centre, on Main Street in Rockton, Illinois. Restrooms and food are included to ensure you enjoy the beauty of this spring ride in the country. Four routes are available which will offer something for everyone. For your safety, helmets are required for all riders.
10-Mile Ride - FAMILY ROUTE
Any age or skill level can experience cycling on village streets and a paved bike trail. The villages of Rockton and Roscoe are true delights that should not be missed. (No supported rest stop, but several commercial stops are available.)
30 Mile Ride
Rolling countryside, quaint towns, and unspoiled views along the Sugar River sets the stage for this tour. The Duck Pond rest stop is a favorite on this route.
45-Mile Ride - NEW LONGER ROUTE WITH SAME GREAT SCENERY
Rolling countryside, quaint towns, and unspoiled views along the Sugar River sets the stage for this tour. The Duck Pond and Beckman Mill are old favorite rest stops on this longer route with fewer of the Wisconsin hills.
65 Mile Ride
Shift into high gear for this 65-mile trek through the rolling hills of Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. You'll pass sprouting farmland, visit charming villages and cruise along the scenic Sugar River.
Once is good - Twice is great!
We love these routes so much that we will offer you the opportunity to ride on both Saturday and Sunday. Choose the day that fits your schedule best - or ride both days. (There is an additional fee for riding both days.)
A detailed route map and cue sheet, sag wagons and exceptionally well-marked roads are what you can expect from the BLACKHAWK COUNTRY ROADS ride. Rest stops are well stocked with high-energy snacks, refreshing drinks and sweet goodies.
Lunch served 10:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. Join us for a relaxing and refreshing lunch at Greater Rockton Centre after your ride.
