Swedish Days Ride
Now in its 49th year, the Swedish Days ride remains one of the premier road bike tours held in the Chicago area. The ride starts and finishes next to Central High School, near Burlington, Illinois. The school is located on Plato Road, 1 mile west of IL Route 47 and approximately 8 miles south of I–90 (44W625 Plato Road, Hampshire, IL 60140 for gps maps). From here all routes travel quiet and scenic paved roads of rural Kane County. The terrain is mostly flat with the occasional hill. Along the way enjoy frequent rest stops stocked with thirst-quenching beverages and energizing food; including selections of fruits, breads, and our famous homemade cookies.
The BP MS 150 is a two-day fundraising bike ride organized by the National MS Society. The ride is the largest event of its kind in North America, with 13,000 cyclists, 3,500 volunteers, and countless spectators along the route and at the finish line in Austin. The fundraising goal for the 2018 BP MS 150 is $14 million dollars to bring hope to many who are affected by multiple sclerosis.
