A Route For Every Rider

All of our five routes begin and end at the same point at the American Family Headquarters located at 6000 American Parkway. Each travels through beautiful country scenery with lakes, rolling fields, mature trees, old barns and a possible glimpse of native wildlife. There’s an option for every experience level and age group, from beginners to young families to the seasoned cyclist.

NOTE: All 102-mile riders must reach the 63/100 mile split at Deerfield Rd and S Jargo road by 12:00 Noon. Any 102-mile riders not making the 12:00 Noon cut off will be routed to the 63-mile route. Cut-off is located between miles 48 and 49.
