2024 Ride the Rivers Century

October 5 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

| $85 – $130


Trailnet’s 2024 Ride the Rivers, Presented by SSM Health, is the most unique 100-mile ride in the Midwest. Challenge yourself on Trailnet’s flagship ride while experiencing some of the area’s most amazing landscapes.

The journey itself is the adventure. You’ll traverse river ferries, rolling hills, and urban trails, passing by orchards, prairies, quaint towns, and bustling cityscapes. Conclude your ride at a lively block party with live bands, food, drinks, and well-deserved pampering. This supported ride offers a unique opportunity to conquer 100 miles!

Want to join in on the century fun with fewer miles? The 100km Metric Century comes in at 64 miles! You’ll ride through many of the same landscapes as the 100-mile Century while enjoying the same benefits and support. The Metric Century isn’t lacking in beauty or difficulty.
