Two Rivers Century

Two Rivers Century

August 05 2018
Kankakee, Illinois, USA

Join us again on the Sunday of the first full weekend in August for an enjoyable one-day ride in Kankakee County along two scenic Illinois rivers! Kankakee County boasts 
both the Kankakee and the Iroquois Rivers, each a treat to see on our many riverside roads.

On the ride, you’ll see not only the two rivers, but downtown Kankakee, Kankakee Community College, The Shapiro Clock Tower, barn quilts, two Frank Lloyd Wright homes, border town Momence and its“Island Park”, buffalo, Watseka, one of the oldest and largest wood frame churches in Illinois, corn and beans, and more! Best of all, minimal traffic!

Two Rivers Century

Is this a family oriented ride?
Definitely! We have six different routes ranging from 22 to 124 miles. This is a ride for everyone. Families with younger children can ride at a leisurely pace on the 22-mile route, while more experienced riders can go at their own pace on the 47, 62, 80, 100,and 124-mile routes. Just remember that SAG stops at 3:30 p.m.!

How are the roads marked?
We use a distinct ride design, color-coded for the loops of the ride you've chosen.

How difficult are the Two Rivers Century routes?
All six routes are on mostly flat countryside, well within the abilities of most cyclists — even beginners. Headwinds can be a factor in farm country areas where there are few trees to block the wind, but many of the miles are along the rivers, where trees are likely to grow.

Routes: 47, 62, 80, 100, 124 miles
Difficulty of Greatest Route: C - Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs
Time Zone: Central Standard Time (CST)
Start Times / Itinerary
