Similar drill to last four 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.

Fundraiser history- 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. Year 4 (last year) we rallied with the Bauers in support of Jason and his fight...

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.

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

Filling Up Quick- 14 spots remain.

First, "thanks" for the response. Already exceeded the number I was expecting. Now it's looking like I'll have to cap this at 50 racers. I just don't have enough sheep herders to keep you all in check. I will have Gilligan and Ginger helping me out.

This is what some of you will be looking at in the end.
I bet at least half of you have said "what are tulips?" 

My response, "Pay attention, to the roads and what the guys around you are looking at." "If they don't respect the tulips, you ditch them." I call it "Lazy Dave syndrome". If you know Lazy Dave, YouknowwhatImean. Ragnarok Year 2, he said "notes, what? who needs notes..." He ended his DNF 10 miles off course. 

Oh, this is tulip only. No gps coordinates. Old School. One might call it 'Mongo' tactics. You ride it, you can keep the way points. Remember there is a vortex out there, all electronic goes dead.
