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!

The cards dealt require this race to be postponed.
APRIL 16. Same time (ship sails 8:15AM), same locations (Harry's).
Conditions of this years course are not ride-able in spots. I don't want you to be cheated, and I don't have a 'short'/ easy course established. Maybe one day I'll have more than one option the day prior to the race...
So the call has been made to try again on April 16.
I realize for some this is lame, and of others it's all good. I also want to apologize to the two events (Wooley Club Ride, Ted-fest) that I'm now doubling up on...

Note- For the 20+ people that registered, and then canceled, please let me know if you want back in for April 16. For those that are catching on late, contributions to the fundraiser will not be turned away.
Hopefully this allows more time for some stuff to happen that has 'good' all over it.
Enjoy this Good Friday and Easter weekend.

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.
