BICYCLE ILLINOIS
Champaign to Kankakee


Overall Route Description
The ride from Champaign to Kankakee is the longest day and a mandatory century, but also the flattest. You'll have the opportunity to really open up on the long, straight stretches of back roads. Keep your fingers crossed that there'll be a nice strong tail wind out of the south as you ride just a hair over 100 miles in one day!

Century Option
There will not be a century option from Champaign to Kankakee. You don't need one - the ride is already a century!
