North Shore Century

North Shore Century

September 15 2019
Evanston, Illinois, USA

The North Shore Century offers incredibly scenic biking. You'll experience luxurious neighborhoods, view unique architectural treasures, pedal down tranquil tree-lined streets and feel the refreshing breezes of Lake Michigan. Open it up in the flat to rolling countryside between Chicago and Wisconsin. Join us on Sunday, September 16, 2018 when the Evanston Bicycle Club sponsors one of Chicagoland's premiere invitational rides - the 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. Cue sheets, painted street markers and GPS guide you.  

THE CLASSIC CENTURY This 100-mile ride is what the North Shore Century is famous for, starting in Evanston and stretching into Kenosha, Wisconsin. Before you head 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.  Perfect for families!
