2017 Z-Tour Ride Routes

New in 2017, the 10 mile route is designed for beginning and family cyclists as it is fairly easy, on primarily flat roads and includes one refreshment (SAG) stop. Our scenic 30 mile will have a 2 SAG & 2 hydration stops while our 50 mile route will incorporate 2 well spaced SAG stops in small town parks, 2 hydration stops, travel on rolling hills, through wooded areas and rural countryside, and cross creeks, canals and covered bridges. Our 65 mile (3 SAGs, 2 Hydration) and 100 mile (4 SAGs, 2 Hydration) routes are challenging, fun and include all the best of the shorter distances and more, making them some of the most memorable road riding in North Central Illinois. As your safety is our concern, all of our routes are well mapped with cue sheets, road markings and signage as well as patrolled with support vehicles in constant radio communication with Ham operators at each major SAG stop and with emergency personnel.
