This page is from the 2021 edition of the Forest City Challenge and is archived here for reference only.

For the current page, please see


Draft versions of the routes are provided below.  Details (cue sheets, directions, etc.) will be provided by the end of May.

We are also planning to have a 'Scavenger Hunt' for those riding the short TVP route.  This would appeal most to those cycling with their families, but will also be of interest to older participants as well.


The three routes ('Ride the TVP', 'Ride the City', 'Ride the County') are provided below, in the following formats:

  • 'Ride With GPS' format, for those with accounts on that service.

  • PDF files with maps and cue sheets/directions that you can download and print.

  • GPX files that you can use in a navigation device such as a Garmin.

Please note that there is no requirement to ride these routes - you can use them if you want, or you can create your own that include some or all or none of these.  Regardless of which you choose to do, please stop by our official rest stops (listed above) to take advantage of their special offers.
