The Z Tour Bike Ride

The Zearing Child Enrichment Center invites you to ride in the Z Tour Charity Bike Ride during the summer.

Each year the scenic Z Tour begins and ends at Princeton’s beautiful Zearing Park. This road ride provides you a chance to enjoy some of the best bike roads that northwest Illinois has to offer. The routes will feature loops that incorporate hills, rolling terrain, beautiful views of Bureau Creek with minimal traffic.

Well stocked rest stops, enthusiastic staff, and a nutritious meal to follow.
