Ten Thousand

May 26 @ 9:00 am - May 27 @ 9:00 pm

free

A 120 mile bike gravel bike ride through Northwest Illinois. Hosted by Comrade Cycles and Freeport Bicycle Company.
Save the date of May 26! Route TBD but expect awesome!

The MidWest is often thought of as a vast, flat mass of land punctuated by endless fields of corn and soybeans. Though that is fairly accurate, there exists an area untouched by the glacial advances that have left much of North Central America with the dull landscape we call home. This area is the Driftless.

Ten Thousand will be 120-ish miles and roughly 10,000ft. of elevation gain with gorgeous views atop high ridges, thrilling descents into river valleys, and astonishingly difficult climbs that’ll put even a mountain dwelling cyclist in pain.

    Is it too late to register for this event? Will I need to send in a post card?
