Choose from ride options of 5, 26, 30, 44, 50, 64, or 89 miles -- mix and match your choice of five segments to customize your experience. Registration and check in is from 7-7:30. A tribute to Major Taylor and special presentation is from 7:30-7:55am.  All rides start at 8:00 a.m. in the heart of Chicago's far South Side, at Morgan Park Commons, 115th Street and the Major Taylor Trail. All riders follow the Major Taylor Trail south and take the Little Calumet River Bridge -- featuring the largest Major Taylor mural ever created -- into Whistler Woods. From Whistler Woods there are two route options, one to Lake Katherine via the scenic Cal-Sag Trail, and another to Lansing Woods. From those destinations there are further options: a loop from Lake Katherine to Sag Quarries, and a loop from Lansing Woods to the Major Taylor grave site in Glenwood. Combining all the options adds up to 88.6 miles and includes three rest stops, at Whistler Woods, Lake Katherine, and Lansing Woods.

At the starting and ending location of this event will be a Bike Rodeo for the children, a health awareness expo with free screenings and information, and a Back-to-School festival.

Proceeds from this event will go towards the upkeep of the Major Taylor Trail and to the Major Taylor Association organized by the Friends of the Major Taylor Trail (majortaylortrail.org) and CNIP -Community and Neighborhood Improvement Project (cnipchicago.org)
