Tri City Health Partnership, a free health care clinic for people who are underinsured or uninsured in central Kane County, IL, helping create a fund raising bike ride. 
 
Not many people know about Tri City Health Partnership, but it is a cute little house in downtown St Charles, IL (318 Walnut St) that has been converted into a free health clinic;  all of the doctors, nurses and medications at the clinic are 100% donation based.   
There will be a 15 mile Family Fun Ride, a 50 and 100 mile ride.
The 50-100 mile riders will start at 7-8am.
15 milers start 8-9am 
All riders start from Sammy's Bike Shop 602 1st St, St Charles, IL 60174
 
The course for the 15 miles will be to LeRoy Oaks Forest Preserve and by the Fox River.
50 mile and century riders will enjoy the scenic ride through green horse pastures & the elongated hill work-out of Campton Hills out to Maple Park, IL.
Century riders will experience the beauty of Shabbona State Park at the 1/2 way rest stop.
 
Vendors on site will include Power Bar, 5 Hour Energy and several others.
 
Sammy's is providing SAG support with a mechanic! Tri City Health Partnership will have a nurse on the route for riders!
Two rest stops with facilities and refreshments.
Route maps will be provided as well as marked routes.
 
Lunch will be provided for all riders courtesy of Pal Joey's and other vendors!
