42nd Annual Wheeler Spring Metric

Is Now History!

Thanks to all who participated in the 2023 Wheeler Spring Metric and especially the volunteers and sponsors who made it possible!

The Bloomington-Normal bike community is awesome!

Save the date for 2024: Saturday, June 8.


Three ~20 mile routes and the 5-mile family route start and end at McLean County’s Comlara Park Spruce Shelter parking area. If you ride all three, you will have completed a Metric Century of 100 km (about 62 miles).

  • Helmets required!

  • Emergency and ride support cell number at the registration table. Please take a photo — just in case.

  • Bicycle mechanics from local bike shops will be onsite from 6:30 – 11:30 a.m.

  • Prepackaged snacks and water will be provided at Comlara. And back by popular demand, an optional post-ride lunch!

  • Family registration is $30 for two adults with children under 14 who are riding the family route. All other registrants riding any of the 20 mile routes must register individually for $25 each until May 31 and then $30 each after that time.   

  • Online registration is preferred to help with planning and minimizing onsite registration time. If you plan to register on-site, please bring cash or check for fees.

  • Optional Sport-Tek LimeShock t-shirt!  Orders end with early registration. Shirts must be picked up on ride day. Design will be similar to the image displayed with the Wheeler logo on the front and sponsors listed on the back.
