Cycle the rolling hills of northern Illinois and around the lakes of southern Wisconsin.  Each participant will enjoy the beautiful scenery as they ride 150 miles in support of the American Lung Association. Ride for a personal achievement, a new cycling experience or to honor a loved one affected by lung disease.

Whatever your reason, your ride will make a difference in the Fight For Air!  Whether you're a 2-Day or 3-Day Rider, each participant will begin their adventure at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake, IL. Each night, luxury accommodations are provided at the Abbey Resort and Spa in Lake Geneva, WI.
