Arlington 500 ~ 28/42/54/69 Mile Options (Public Event)

Registration is now open for the Arlington 500 hosted by the Arlington Heights Bicycle Club! This is a recreational ride on the scenic roads of Lake County, IL. Your registration fee includes cue sheet, map, road markings, rest stops with beverages and snacks, and roving support vehicles on the route. Free "Fun Meter" pins for all who pre-register!



Check out pics from 2012's ride here.





The route opens at 6:30 am - all 54 and 69 mile riders must be on the route by 9:00 am; all 28 and 42 mile riders by 10:00 am.

All pre-registration is via snail mail. Click here to access the printable ride brochure and entry form. Pre-registration cost is $10.00 and must be postmarked by May 13th; register at the ride for $15.00.


I will be driving a blue Honda Odyssey van and will attach a balloon to the antenna; I will also email my cell phone number to all riders who have RSVPed "Yes" by the night before the ride. Anyone who wants to hook-up pre-ride can look for the balloon or give me a buzz if you can't find us - I plan on hitting the route when it opens at 6:30 am.

    would love to do the 54, but will do the 42 for sure. Just as long as it's not so hot and if there's a wind, may it be the kind that pushes you up those hills! If it's set up like last year, it's loops out of a common rest stop so you can adjust your mileage to how you're feeling.

    Mileage 42? 54? Still so early in the season - depends upon how my legs hold up!
