The Metric Century ride is part of CCC Weekend, which runs from Sept. 7 through Sept. 9. It includes both metric (62 mile) and half metric (31 mile) options. All riders complete a half metric loop to the Athens food stop. Those who want a full metric add a second loop from Athens to Greenview. All riders return via the new Sangamon County Trail Extension, which features the longest rails-to-trails bridge in Illinois.
Registrants pay a single price for all CCC Weekend events. An Early Bird registration discount for online registration runs through August 31. Online, mail-in and day of event registration are available.

Events during CCC Weekend include a Metric Century, a Historic Bicycle Ride, and a Community Festival on Saturday, Sept. 8, and the 46th annual Classic Century and free a Family Ride on Sunday, Sept. 9. Camping at the Fairgrounds is available all three days.
