Come and join us for a great ride through Kendall and Grundy Counties, southwest of Plainfield, IL. The fully supported Metric Century includes three basic routes: 32, 45, and 68 miles. Plus…for those who want to get in a full Century, we are once again offering a Century Option. (See Details below). Each basic route will offer marked routes with low traffic and light hills through farm and rural settings.
There will be breaks along the way, at our strategically placed rest stops, to refuel, refresh, and chow down on bagels, sandwiches, fruit, cookies and energy drinks.

Maps and cue sheets for all three routes will be available on the day of the ride.  GPS files of the routes will be available on the website one week prior to the ride date.

 All riders must be off the road by 4:00 PM (This includes the Century Route Riders), so please, don’t take too many breaks and plan accordingly!

Century Option

We are once again offering the option of extending the routes between rest stops on the 62 mile route to get a Full Century. These route extensions will be unsupported, but new for 2017, the route will be marked.

The Century Route will be using the existing rest stops which are listed on the 62 mile route, but for riders needing to refuel between rest stops, the Century route will pass by the Casey’s in Seneca.

We will be providing maps and cue sheets for the Century Route. GPS files of the Century Route will be available on the website one week prior to the ride date.

Any updates on the story of the crash that sent one cyclist over a bridge and into a creek? Is the cyclist OK?
