Challenging new 600k route out of the St Charles/Batavia area for 2022!  We start out on the Fox River Trail and head west early in the morning to Rochelle and stop briefly in Oregon before heading south to Dixon.  Then the hills begin!  From Dixon, we wind north all the way to Galena, IL.  Tank up in Galena!  There are two possible overnights at Polo and Oregon, IL, but you will likely have 60-100 miles in the dark without services.  We finally head up a large bike lane along the Rock River to Byron before heading west to Woodstock, rejoining the Fox River Trail back ot the start.

This is Labor Day weekend so make your overnight reservations very early.  This is a great goal ride for those interested in Paris Brest Paris.  Take on Nature's Metropolis 140 in mid-July, the Madtown Express Double Century in August and cap it off with this ride.  Lights and reflective gear mandatory.  We will follow classic randonneuring rules with brevet cards and controls.
