Game Info

LML 2018 will be 3-24-18, with a backup date of 4-14-18.

Send email to-

In the email, state full name, and either the 'Full' ~80+mi or 'Lite' ~40 mi route. No single speed, fatbike or whatever class, just M or F.

More details to come on the fundraiser, but do expect it to go for good.

Similar drill to last five 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... Year 5 was cancer awareness and fund support to a single Mom.

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!

Time to start thinking on it...

Things to consider:

  • What are you using for a tulip holder?
  • Do you still run a wired cyclometer circa 1998 like me?
  • How long has it been since you've sat on a bike seat for greater than 6 hours?
  • Got studs? 
  • Bring canned goods you don't use. They will go to a good cause.
  • Treat. Spring thaw/ prevailing wind are always out of the Northwest that time of year. 
  • Harry's Cafe has awesome post race food and drink.
  • Ever heard of Rock Tape? Health Source Chiropractic of Lakeville will be at registration to give you a demo and work the kinks out.
  • Registration from 7AM-8:30AM. Race start 9AM.
  • Milltown Cycles is looking forward to your visit...
  • If you didn't race this deal last year. Don't plan on the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line theory.
  • Male, Female, Fat Class (World Champ title, unsure of distance, but it's legit)
  • Have you ever met the Goat? 
  • If you run fenders make sure they have enough mud clearance. 
  • C5 Photography will once again be capturing this riddle.
  • I will be making you sign a waiver, and need cover this with event insurance. It costs me $5/ head. Donations to cover overhead are appreciated. 
  • Roster is over 70 people. 
  • Last and most important- Mother Nature is in charge. Be prepared.
Frozen rutts on mind numbing gravel. Bonus.
