COVID-19 Updates

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and Restrictions on Events, the CVCR Committee has decided to postpone the 2020 Ride until August 9th.  We are still working on all the details.  That weekend is part of Chippewa Falls' Pure Water Days, so there will be fun events for everyone.
We are committed to providing a safe ride for the riders and the 100 volunteers working the ride.  We expect details to change as we get closer to the ride date and know what the experts recommend for large group events and social distancing.
If you have already registered for the 2020 ride, your registration will be transfered to the new date.
We will offer refunds up to and including the day of the ride as we do not want anyone to attend if they do not feel well or are concerned about their health.  There will be an online procedure to request a refund which will be launched in the next few weeks.
Some of the changes we expect:
* Saturday night wrist band and packet pick up will not include a party / get together.
* There will be NO onsite registration.  All registration must be done online or by mail before the ride.
* The start/finish/meal location will change.
*Please register by July 26, so we can plan and purchase enough food.
Of course we do not know what the social rules for events will be in August at this time.  We will review the situationn at the beginning of July.
Please follow us on Facebook for the latest news.

The Chippewa Valley Century Ride is a not for profit bike ride that benefits hunger task force agencies, local parks, youth organizations, and special needs in the Chippewa Valley. Our course includes a 35, 50, 75, or 100 mile option all on blacktop roads, leading through the beautiful farmland of Chippewa County along the Chippewa and Flambeau Rivers, Lakes Wissota and Holcombe, and through the kettle moraine topography of the Chippewa County Forest.

The Ride starts and finishes at the lower pavilion of Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Participants can pre-register online at a discounted rate as well as register the day of the ride. Riders check in from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. and then immediately start the Ride.

The entry fee covers our 4 full-service rest stops with snacks, refreshments and full facilities, water stops, “sag”/support vehicles and a full meal featuring locally made brats with all the 'fixins', soda and Leinenkugel's beer. A vegetarian meal is available if ordered in advance (just let us know on your pre-registration form).


We encourage everyone to bring their whole family to Chippewa Falls. Irvine Park is an ideal setting for a family outing. William Irvine was a lumbering man. In 1885, he became general manager of the Chippewa Lumber and Boom Co., a subsidiary of the Weyerhaeuser Co., which at that time was the world's largest sawmill. Irvine continued as general manager of the mill until the last pine log at Chippewa Falls was sawed in 1911. In his will, Irvine gave the park to Chippewa Falls along with $100,000 for its upkeep. The park is located in the city limits of Chippewa Falls, has over 300 acres of natural scenic beauty, many trails, a zoo, historical displays, and several children's playgrounds. In the past years, approximately 600 people have participated and this year we are expecting an even better turnout. Each year, riders tell us this is a premier course and has top-notch organization.

INDIVIDUAL RIDE: Price through January 1 - $35 / Price after January 1 - $45 / Price after July 26 - $60

FAMILY RIDE: Price through January 1 - $80 / Price after January 1 - $95 / Price after July 26 - $120

PLEASE REGISTER BEFORE JULY 26 so we can accurately plan for the correct number of people
