4th of July Century – 2019

Route Update
The routes have been finalized, and we ended up with 30, 50, 75, and 100 mile routes.

All riders will depart the Plainfield South High School, and head out to the Plattville SAG stop. From Plattville, there will be multiple cloverleaf routes which start and end in Plattville. All riders will turn right on Ashley road when exiting Plattville, then follow the colored arrows. The longer the route, the more loops the rider will ride. Each cloverleaf loop uses different colored arrows for road markings.

Maps and cue sheets for all the routes will be available at Registration. There will also be 18” x 24” maps available for viewing at Registration and Plattville. Links to for all the routes will be available on our website the last week in June.

Start Time for 2019

Each year, there are multiple calls and e-mails about the start time. Registration and check in opens at 7:00 AM, and all riders must stop by the registration tent prior to heading out. All riders must be off the road by 4:00 PM (this includes the Century Route Riders). Please plan your time accordingly!
