REGISTRATION IS OPEN.

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!

Race Status- Mother. Nature Update

I know that most of you consider yourselves 'hard core' all weather cyclists. Why else would you commit to a bike race in March?

Fact. You would probably travel to Tasmania just to bike into a dust storm to see if you can stay upright on two wheels...

I also know that regardless of this snow storm many of you would still head south into the Rice County abyss. By hook or crook you would pedal.

I will make the call Friday as early as possible regarding the course status. 'If' needed a Plan B/ postpone date- tentative Sat Apr 16. [Many have already contacted me backing out with a wide variety of reasons, only one stating out for weather... interesting.]

Race update on Friday will be communicated via this blog, facebooks, email, to you and your associates committed to race guilting you.

Just add jelly-
KEEP IN MIND:
- Fundraiser contributions are always welcomed, regardless of your race status.
- A raffle and some sweet prizes are in the works.
- Arrive early to register, 6:30AM.
- 8:15AM the ship sets sail southbound from Harry's
- Swag Swap, bring some prizes to contribute. NO JUNK ALLOWED.
- Walmart overflow lot for parking. Overflow restroom as well.
- Tulip notes. Treat them like you treat a carbon bike. Carefully. [insert Cyclocarbon plug here]
- Check in at Milltown Cycles is required, second leg of tulips.
- Finish line check in .Getting your result put on paper/ and functional status with Jimmay.
- Patronage of Milltown Cycles and Harry's Café, show your appreciation.
- You are responsible for you. Don't call me, I'm racing.
- to infinity and beyond... 8.

Until then, I'm on shoveling detail... Strong back weak mind...
