RESCHEDULED 4-16-16.

Send me an email if you want in. sauber715@gmail.com

Similar drill to last three editions. Harry's Cafe in Lakeville to Milltown Cycles in Faribault, and return. Race will be ~80 miles on a mix of gravel, pavement, and as much off road and questionable stuff as mother nature will allow. Start will be from Harry's at 8AM, park in the Walmart lot.

Race will be capped at ~100 people. If you showed last year you are automatically in but email must be sent, and I play favorites.

Something more than just a bike race- FUNDRAISER. Again, 'Cancer Sucks. Do Something'. This year we will again raise cancer awareness whether for yourself or those you may influence directly or even indirectly. Year 1 we raised $1300 for a young man in need. Year 2 we generated 400 lbs of food and $ for local food shelf. Year 3 the raiser brought in more than $2000 for a beautiful woman fighting cancer.

Ethos: You are responsible for you. If you get stuck in one spot, you gotta get yourself out of it. Bring a phone, straight key for an SOS, or sky flares.

NOTE: The course will not be the same as last year. So disregard your bootleg GPS map. You rely on it, and it will cheat you.

NOTE 2: There will be no fatbike class. Fatbike hype will never take off after all...

THANKS TO MILLTOWN CYCLES & HARRY'S CAFE for their continued support.

Some might say to self,  "north iowa? What the heck does that LCR guy mean..."

Decoded- anything south of Buck Hill is north iowa in my book.

There is something about a bicycle, backroads, and the randomness you encounter that spurs these races. Until whenever... don't cheat yourselves-
