ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF A LATE SUMMER RIDE

The North Shore Century offers incredibly scenic biking. You'll experience luxurious neighborhoods, view unique architectural treasures, pedal down tranquil tree-lined streets and feel the refreshing breezes of Lake Michigan. Open it up in the flat to rolling countryside between Chicago and Wisconsin.

Join us on Sunday, September 18th when the Evanston Bicycle Club sponsors one of Chicagoland's premiere invitational rides - the 27th annual North Shore Century.

Hundreds of riders make the North Shore Century their last - maybe their best - ride of summer. You can, too.

CHOOSE THE RIDE THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU

We offer a variety of well-mapped and well-marked rides for biking enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Annotated cue sheets and painted street markers guide you. All routes share the same first 5 miles.

THE CLASSIC CENTURY
This 100-mile ride is what the North ShoreCentury is famous for, starting in Evanston and stretching into Kenosha, Wisconsin. Before you head back, you'll cycle through some of the most elegant communities in Illinois.

THE DIAMOND CENTURY For those who want more than a Metric Century but may not be up to doing a full Century, this 70-mile route is calling you!

THE METRIC CENTURY This 62 miler winds its way through quiet rural streets and picturesque towns and villages, past handsome homes, parks and lovely village greens.

THE HALF CENTURY Our most popular ride! This 50-mile ride goes to beautiful Lake Forest before your journey takes you back towards Evanston, riding past mansions on Sheridan Road.

THE QUARTER CENTURY A wonderful 25-mile ride for those of you who want a leisurely day out on your bike and an opportunity to see some of the most architecturally impressive homes around.

All routes depart from and finish at Evanston's Dawes Parlk. (Scroll down for parking information.)  Registration begins at 6 a.m. on the day of the ride. Century riders must register by 9 a.m. All others may register until 11 a.m., at which time registration closes. Routes close at 6 p.m.

 (Please note that Evanston requires cyclists under the age of 18 to wear a helmet).
