About This Activity

The 11th Annual Tour d’Exchange Bike Race, presented by the Charleston Exchange Club, offers 10, 25 & 50-mile (Half Century) bike races.  The 3 cycling courses begin at the Historic Courthouse Square in Charleston, Illinois, and travel through scenic rolling hills and bucolic rural landscapes in Coles & Clark Counties. 




The 11th Annual Tour d’Exchange Bike Race is a timed event. All participants will receive a finisher's medallion.  Riders who pre-register will receive a finisher's medallion plus a t-shirt & goodie bag.


Awards will be presented to:


  • Top overall male/female in all three timed rides

  • Top 3 male/female in each of the following age divisions:


           18 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 & over. 


Whether you're interested in improving your time or just enjoying the ride, it’s a great ride!


At the finish line, you'll be greeted with music and a live DJ and a host of things to do following the event.


Co-partnering with the Charleston Exchange Club this year will be both the Charleston Kiwanis Club and CTF (Community Services Foundation) Illinois. In addition to helping the Exchange Club host the race, the Kiwanis Club will be providing activities for children. And CTF Illinois will be hosting its annual MuseFest on the Historic Courthouse Square.


MuseFest will be revving up after the first cyclists take off, and will be going full swing by the time they finish. MuseFest will involve 70+ vendors (food, arts & crafts) and later in the afternoon a beer tent. There are also a number of local restaurants, antique shops, and attention-grabbing bookstores situated right on the Historic Courthouse Square.


What a great way to jumpstart your summer cycling season.  Come for the race—stay for the fun!


All funds raised by the Tour d’Exchange will go to local agencies that help in the prevention of child abuse.
