Distances: 7 days, 600 miles
Limited to: 500 or less Participants

Starting from the town of Cairo at Illinois' southernmost tip and ending in the heart of downtown Chicago, Bicycle Illinois is the only cycling event across the entire state of Illinois. Held annually, the fully supported ride covers 500 to 600 miles with nightly stops in Cairo, Carbondale, Centralia, Effingham, Champaign, and Kankakee. For riders looking for even more of a challenge, a century option is available every day of the ride.

There will be six consecutive days of riding with pre-designated, supported rest stops along the way. Each ride segment is an estimated 20 miles between rest stops. As always, this route follows the safest, most direct route between our stopping towns.

For a bigger challenge, you can continue cycling north to Wisconsin the following day on the Tri-State Tour #2, which also includes a century option. That's up to 7 centuries in 7 days - no other cycling event comes close!

Whether you're a recreational cyclist looking for the sense of accomplishment, or an athlete who wants to enhance your endurance skills, Bicycle Illinois has something for you. Along with new friends and our caring, service-oriented, professional staff, you'll gain a new level of satisfaction and self-confidence!
