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!

Cancer Sucks, do something-

FYI- this year's LML fundraiser has been finalized.

Bicycling can be a battle, but it's the sort that we enjoy. We do it by choice. Put your bike down and imagine battling something not by choice. In the end, we will all face it. Whether it be your health, wellness, or that of those dear to you.

Jason Bauer, brother of Todd Bauer/ TMBimages and uncle of TwinSix employee and rider Josh Bauer, has had a tough ordeal since his colorectal cancer diagnosis in May of 2014. His doctors thought the cancer was completely removed in Oct 2014, but it reoccurred in Aug 2015. He hasn't caught a break through 16 ROUNDS OF CHEMOTHERAPY, 45 RADIATION TREATMENTS, 7 SURGERIES, AND A PERMANENT COLOSTOMY.

Unfortunately, the last surgery recently in Feb 2016 did not provide the news the Bauer Family was hoping for. The tumor in Jason's pelvis is too invasive to be completely removed. The Bauer's have been informed that patients with this type of cancer have a life expectancy of 2-3 years.

Jason is not just a 43 year old guy with cancer. He's and avid recreational cyclist, skateboarder, and bass player in the band Antiverse. He and his wife Amanda love to travel and spend time with family and friends. He has met each challenge the last two years with grit and fearless determination.

This is an opportunity you get to race/ride your bike and raise awareness (whether for yourself or others) about cancer and use your influence to inspire on levels you may never even recognize. Cancer sucks. Do something.

Other roads can be way rougher than this...
