PRINCETON — On July 20, the Zearing Child Enrichment Center will again sponsor the “Z Tour Bike Ride,” a bicycle road ride originating in Princeton and including surrounding communities.

The event will begin at Zearing Park in Princeton and will include the registrant’s choice of a 10-mile, 29-mile, 40-mile, 50-mile, 62-mile or 100-mile ride on specified routes throughout Bureau County.

The event will feature themed refreshment stops, mobile emergency first aid, water, air and bike transportation. At the conclusion of the ride, each rider will be provided a complimentary lunch at Zearing Park.

Brian Church, Z Tour director, remarked, “We are really looking forward to continue to build on the success of the first two events. This year, we are hoping to host at least 400 riders. Our steering committee strongly believes that this area has some of the best cycling roads in Illinois and an organized road ride like Z Tour will showcase our local merchants and the surrounding communities. It is also a great way to promote benefits and services offered at the Zearing Child Enrichment Center.”

To register and ride in the event, visit z-tour.org or the Facebook page Z Tour Bike Ride. Questions can be sent via email to ztourinfo@gmail.com.
