Date: Saturday July 20th, 2024

Starting Location: SMWC at US-150 and St. Marys Rd., Terre Haute, Indiana

Surface Type: Road

Event Details: RAIN is a one-day bicycle ride across Indiana. The 160-mile course runs mostly on the Historic National Road (US 40), an older, divided four-lane road with light traffic and gentle rolling hills. The ride begins on the campus of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) in West Terre Haute, Indiana, and crosses the state to Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. You should condition yourself for this ride, limit your time off the bike during the ride, and be able to maintain a rolling average at least 14 mph for 12 hours.

Ride Overview: Signage and roadway markings clearly mark the route. In addition to the signs, a painted raindrop on the pavement containing an “R” indicates a turn with the narrow “point” of the drop.

The 2023 RAIN route maps and cue sheets are found here. GPS route files are found here, where the route may be downloaded in a variety of bike computer GPS formats. There are several areas of road construction along the RAIN route this year, so please use caution when you ride through them.

Two construction areas require detours. Just before rest stop 3 at Franklin Township school, a portion of Edgewood Drive is closed to all traffic—see the map here for details on the detour. At Centerville a bridge is being repaired, and a detour from the normal route is required—see the map found here for details on the detour.

If you have a personal support vehicle (PSV) assisting you, it is your responsibility to ensure your support crew reads and follows the PSV Guide and drives only on the PSV route.
