Join us on Sunday, September 18th when the Evanston Bicycle Club sponsors one of Chicagoland’s premiere invitational rides - the 32nd annual North Shore Century.  Hundreds of riders make the North Shore Century their last - maybe their best - ride of summer. You can, too.

We offer a variety of well-mapped and well-marked rides for biking enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Annotated cue sheets and painted street markers guide you. All routes share the same first five miles.

THE CLASSIC CENTURY This 100 mile ride is what made the North Shore Century famous; it starts in Evanston and stretches to Kenosha, Wisconsin. On your way back you’ll cycle through some of the
most elegant communities in Illinois.

THE METRIC CENTURY This 62 miler winds its way through quiet rural streets and picturesque towns and villages, past handsome homes, parks and lovely village greens.

THE HALF CENTURY This 50 mile ride goes to beautiful Lake Forest before your journey takes you back towards Evanston, riding past mansions on Sheridan Road.

THE QUARTER CENTURY A wonderful 25 mile ride for those of you who want a leisurely day out on your bike and an opportunity to see some of the most architecturally impressive homes around.

All North Shore Century rides begin and end in Evanston in Dawes Park (Lagoon Building) at Sheridan & Church.

Registration begins at 6 a.m. on the day of the ride. Century riders must register by 9 a.m. All others may register until 11 am, at which time registration closes. Routes close at 6 pm.
