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!

Race Update-

Bike racing for something more than just another bike race... Cancer affects us all in some way. This is an opportunity to take the thing we all love to do and combine it with something that really sucks. Most importantly, your contribution will help Monica and her family.

It has been proven in all 4 previous editions of LML, you bike type people can make a difference.

You never know how this will play out. It could be awareness for yourself, the money you contribute, or the people you encounter... and I'm not talking bike racing. I'm am talking the what/ how/ why of cancer.

  • March 4th. The last day for any LML rookies to register for the race.
  • How to contribute to the cause? It will be day of contributions. Suggested donation is $20.
  • Course route- if conditions allow, expect 90+ miles. 50 miles to Milltown, 40 miles back.
  • Climbs to knowhere? Maybe.
  • GPX File? Nope. Paper tulip notes only.
  • Swag Swap- Yes. Bring your new in box or slightly used bicycle related part. This is the race swag. Donate one, take what you want at the finish line. There is always some pretty nice items that get donated. So don't be cute and bring any bicycle junk.
  • Race contribution- it costs me out of pocket about $10/ person to do this. Donation is appreciated.  
  • Park at the Walmart overflow lot. Registration starts at 6:30AM.
  • The ship will set sail at 8AM. Be there early or you will be left behind.
If like last year we have to postpone due to weather, the makeup date will be Saturday April 8th.

I don't believe in luck, but if I did, we will be riding on March 25th.

More details will surface as this unfolds. 

Somebody attack would ya!
