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!

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 CafĂ©.
    • 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...

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...
