Always the first Sunday after Labor Day
The Capital City Century (CCC) is one of the oldest cycling events in central Illinois, attracting attracting 800+ riders from multiple states. This year's CCC will be held on Sunday, September 8th, 2013.
Distance options are 12, 25, 40, 62 and 100 miles over flat to slightly rolling terrain. The CCC features organized food stops, SAG service, and a post-ride party at the Knights of Columbus in Springfield. Consider coming a day early (September 7th) and taking part in a free, 8-mile Historic Ride that features many Springfield area sites.
