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.  We then wind through the driftless down Irish Hollow Road and some awesome climbs to Savanna where you can optionally stop for the night at Savanna Inn and Suites - though as of 7.26 it is full.  Other options are Galena and Mt Carroll - highly recommend trying AirBnd for a good, simple deal.  Once you leave the overnight, the hillls begin to peter out and you'll have a great view of the Mighty Rock River as you come into Byron in the early morning.  Then we head back east through Kingston and Woodstock before ending with the final 35 miles almost entirely on the Fox River and Prairie bike Trails.

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 - with 14,000 ft of climbing, it's not quite as hilly but has some real challenges and beautiful terrain.  This is also great follow up to the Madtown Express Double Century in August.  Lights and reflective gear mandatory.  We will follow classic randonneuring rules with brevet cards and controls.

Note, not all is lost if you can't find an overnight ahead of time.  If you are contemplating PBP, drop sacks are never assured at the place you want to stay anyways.  Flexibility (and developing it) are key so this ride is an opportunity.

This ride is sanctioned by RUSA and the ACP.  It will count as a pre-qualifier for PBP next year.  You still have to do the 4 actual qualification rides next year before the end of June.  Prequalification only impacts the order in which you register.
