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!

No Vacancy/ Roster Full-

The roster is full, we will stop taking random entries on leap day, Feb 29th.

Condition- If you have participated on any of the three previous race editions, or if I O U, or you plan to donate a bunch of money to the cancer fundraiser, then you should still attempt to get in by sending that difficult email for registration prior to Mar 12th. LCR's, I play favorites, they are always in no matter, I bleed LCR. Funny thing is, many will boycott. Tough love.

Preliminary Race Details-
  • Registration will start at 6:45AM- 8AM at Harry's Café.
    • Sign in, get your tulips, wake up
    • Fundraiser donations to the fight against cancer ($20 or greater are appreciated).
    • Our mission is to raise cancer awareness and help Jason Bauer's fight...
    • Race donations of $5-10 are also appreciated, overhead costs
    • Harry's has a bathroom, please keep it clean for business.
  • Parking- Park at the Walmart overflow lot adjacent to Harry's.
  • Swag Swap- Once again please bring that valued new in box or slightly used bike part that you believe someone else will highly value. Drop in the box, take what you like once you've finished. This is our swag, we swap. Get it?
  •  We will leave Harry's between 8AM-8:15AM, heading south to Milltown Cycles, one way or another...
They are awake now...

We have a bunch of new racers to this, if you don't know tulip notes and self navigation racing, then you better get yourself up to speed on the game within the game...

More details as they unfold.

Go ride into the early spring headwind and take a deep breath...
