Please join us as we celebrate the 46th annual 4th of July Century! Come for a great ride on low traffic roads through the rural settings of Kendall County.

You can choose from 25, 50, 75 or 100 mile routes. Each rider will receive a Map and Cuesheet, and the routes will be well marked.

You can refuel and refresh on a variety of high energy food and drink at our well-staffed rest stop. Mechanics will be on duty to help with any mechanical issues.

New for 2020!

The safety of the ride participants is of primary importance. All riders must wear helmets. Routes are on public roads and must be shared with motor vehicles. We recommend riding no more than two abreast, and obey all traffic laws. Please show courtesy to Motorists and other Cyclists. Same Rules – Same Rights! Please exit the roadway at rest stops.

All riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult throughout the ride.

Support and Gear (SAG)

SAG vehicles will be patrolling all routes. While SAGs will stop to help those in need, priority is given to those with justifiable emergencies (e.g. irreparable breakdowns, illness or injury). A flat tire is not considered an emergency. All riders should carry a few basic tools, spare tube, pump and water. All riders must be off the road by 4:00 pm.
