RAIL North will travel approximately 175 miles in one day from Moline to Chicago.
The event will always occur on the Sunday on or before June 21st, the longest day of the year.
All cycling will occur on Sunday. The biggest benefit to riding on Sunday will be much less stress since you will have more time on Saturday to travel to the start of the event and prepare for the ride. You won‚Äôt have to rush after work on Friday or attend our opening meeting so early at 4:30 am on Saturday before what is already an incredibly long day. People who normally work on Saturdays will also have the opportunity to participate in the event. The biggest drawback to riding on Sunday is that you will have much less time to rest and recover from the ride before work/school on Monday.
Starting from Cairo at Illinois' southernmost tip and ending in downtown Chicago, Bicycle Illinois is the only bicycle tour across the entire state of Illinois and one of the most challenging in the Midwest. You'll cycle for 6 days and cover at least 500 miles, an average of 85 miles per day, and century options are available every day as well.
Whether you are a recreational cyclist looking for a sense of accomplishment or an athlete looking to challenge yourself and improve your cycling skills, Bicycle Illinois has something for you. You'll gain a new level of satisfaction and self confidence as you ride with new friends along the way!
