    Current loop is 1.6 mi and the new section will be 0.5 mi but it can't yet be incorporated into a continuous loop. It's 6.4 miles from Illiniwek to Dorrance via bikepath so two laps at Dorrance would be needed to break 100 miles.
    Trails don't build themselves.

    Default 2017 FORC'n Duro

    Some info about this Saturday's ride:

    • Must be a FORC member. Signup or renew here: http://www.qcforc.org/content.php?120

    • This is a group ride, not a race. It will be semi-supported.
    o The main group will attempt to keep with the schedule posted on the website. http://www.qcforc.org/content.php?233-FORC-n-Duro
    o Faster rides can ride ahead, but they will not have any SAG support
    o Slower riders may be left behind the main group if needed. We’re trying to complete before 7pm when it gets dark
    o SAG will have snacks and drinks at stops designed on the schedule. This will be at each trail system and one stop between SCP and Vans

    • Lunch will be at Vans in Davenport. We should arrive there around 11:15. Bring cash to pay for your food and beverage.

    • You must complete the entire ride to earn the coveted 2017 FORC’n Duro FINSIHER sticker. This includes all black diamonds, like Area 51 and L.T. It’s fine to hike-a-bike whatever sections you want. All of this is for fun and based on the honor system, so just have a good time and don’t get over your head. Early finishers can wait until the main group finishes to get their sticker, or we’ll get it to you later.

    • Some trails will have signage for the route, but don’t depend on it. If you’re not familiar with the 6 trails systems, please review the trail maps before. Most of the systems are done counter clockwise with extra loops to the right. So, you’ll pretty much always take the right at a fork.

    • We’re planning to have brats grilled at the end in Illiniwek Campground. We’ll supply the meat. Please bring a side and beverage of your choice

    • Cars can be left overnight at WBP and the Illiniwek campgrounds on Friday or Saturday night. More info to come on where to park

    • Check out the Facebook event and the FORC page for more info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1275...tive_tab=about

    so can we still sign up for this or is this a sign up the day of the ride and is there a cost other than the membership?

    No cost, just the FORCmembership. We'll have membership sign up stuff the morning of the ride, but it would be best to sign up before to save on time.

    Let us know if you have any other questions. Hope to see you Saturday morning.

    Kyle - That's right. Be at Westbrook at 6:30. We'll have a quick talk with everyone at 6:45 and hit the trails at 7. Checkout the Facebook event page for any updates: https://www.facebook.com/events/1275...tive_tab=about
