Note from Derek: Sunday April 23rd is the first SBC Cycling Challenge of the year.  The start is at the Rochester Community Park in Rochester, IL.  Registration is FREE and will open shortly after 8am, please arrive EARLY to get registered.  Registration will close sharply at 8:55 so we can start promptly at at 9am.  Sometimes registration can take more time than we like so check in early please.

This Ride will offer 3 distances, a 26 mile route to Riverton and back, or a 57 mile loop to Illiopolis or a 103 mile loop to Decatur. All the rides are self supported and you will have opportunity to to stop at convenience stores along the way to purchase drink and food.  I also suggest that you bring your own water and a snack bar or 2 for the start.
