COVID-19 UPDATE: Following the recommendations set forth by local and federal officials, the CDC and cycling groups, the Rotary Club of Naperville Downtown (RCND) has made the difficult decision to cancel the Rotary Ride scheduled for August 9, 2020. We are already working hard on returning the Ride in 2021.

Riders may start at 6:30 a.m. and no later than 10:00 a.m. This is a ride, not a race!
