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 is ON.

How about that aye??? The weather looks good.

Previous race details remain the same. See series of blog posts for details. Be early, we will not wait around after 8AM.

Let me know via email if you are not showing... It helps me herd all the cats... and please don't email me with ifs and buts, only if you are NOT showing... I confuse easily.

Also, I appreciate all the messages from people stating 'I'm out, but I'm still going stop by and donate.' THANK YOU. That sort of generosity is why I keep putting this thing on...

So, if iffy weather is not your deal, please do stop by and show your generosity. Stick around and eat a stellar scratch kitchen breakfast at Harry's as well... The food is fantastic.

Even better drive on down to Milltown and check out the shop and DT Faribault... You'll have some good laffs watching racers check in and scurry around like not so svelte ballet dancers...

Chris Gibbs/ C5 Photography has generously offered to donate all the proceeds for selling his 'Breathe' Poster to Monica's fundraiser. Posters will be selling for $20.

C5 Poster- All proceeds go to Monica's fundraiser

Next, we will be taking orders for the LML custom t-shirts by DVD, $20/ each...

How can you pass up a t-shirt for hobo's, hipsters, or hillbilly's

If you want electronic maps here are some options to riddle over:

Human error factor in plotting is greater than 10%, you mess up the route and get off course based on your digital file, your deal.
