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!

Other details:

  • Park in the Walmart overflow lot
  • Register inside Harry's Cafe (starts at 6:30AM until 8AM)
  • Swag Swap- Bring your new in box or 'slightly' used bike parts to trade or donate. NO JUNK or worn out bike parts/ crap you would just throw out.
  • Fundraiser- We are raising awareness and funds to contribute to the fight against cancer and Jana's story.
  • Tulips- You will get a sheet at the start to get to Milltown, and a sheet at Milltown to get back to Harry's.
  • Conditions- Expect 85 miles, 6,000' of climbing. I may have to reroute some good stuff if the snow doesn't melt/ dry out by Friday. I'll post something Friday night on conditions.
  • 3 Climbs to Nowhere/ Knowhere. 1 on out leg, 2 on return leg. What is that? Show up to find out.
  • Check in at Milltown, enjoy some bacon off the grill, donuts, and Milltown hospitality. 
  • Donations- This race costs me $5-10 per person, donations of that amount appreciated, any more than that should go to Jana, a beer at Harry's, or a tube from Milltown.
  • After the race don't bail too quickly. Enjoy the scratch kitchen at Harry's, superb. 
Expect another crooked finish...
NOTE- any last minute requests to enter the race have one hard condition/ if you want to race you are required to attack off the front.
