Trailnet's 2023 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 route is the experience. Starting in the early morning hours, your adventure will take you all over the region. You’ll ride river ferries, rolling hills, and urban trails past orchards, prairies, small towns, and large cityscapes. At your journey's end, arrive at a block party at The Streets of St. Charles, featuring food, drinks, and a well-earned rest. This supported ride gives you a unique chance to crush 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.
*Please note these are not the final routes. You will receive the most up-to-date route to download in the week prior to ride day.
