Game Info

SAVE THE DATE 3-25-17. Backup dates are April 8 or 15th.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN.

Send me an email if you want in. sauber715@gmail.com

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!

Update- Weather Forecast

Being this event is part bike race, part fundraiser, I gotta take into consideration weather forecast. I don't want you all to be cheated in riding/ racing your bike and participating in something that goes beyond a bicycle.

Race tulip notes from a map my ride file will be posted as a link on this blog on Thursday if this a go. This will help avoid the soggy paper factor. If you've ever fumbled with tulips in the rain it's a real treat, especially when the paper just disintegrates in your hands... Then what? 

I will make the call on Thursday evening as to stay the course and race on Saturday or postpone to Saturday April 8th.

Shooting for an 80-20 rule. If we get 80% of the people to be satisfied in the decision (to race or not in looming rain), it will be a win.

Elko-Roubaix Sector. If rain, this will be out.

With rain, course will be modified. Elko-Roubaix and a few other spots will be out if raining on Friday and 'if' we go forward for Saturday's race. Last year we postponed due to ice/ snow conditions, and rescheduling allowed riding some good offroad stuff.

DON'T FORGET-
  • Park at Walmart overflow lot
  • Swag Swap- bring new in box or slightly used swag, we swap. No junk allowed
  • Registration- 6AM-8AM, ship sets sail at 8AM.
  • LML Lite Option, 38 miles. Full loop 94 miles. You make the call.
  • Limited edition T-Shirts- Contribute $75 or greater to Monica's cause, $10 to the race fund, and show up while supplies last and get a shirt! T-shirts will be for sale by order as well.
  • Fundraiser- most important part of all of this. We can collectively do something to help someone, and maybe even influence one another to think about our health in a different way.

NOTE: the previous roster may have up to 10% error. Check your name and your intention.

NOTE: if you melt in the rain please let me know you wont be at the race. Each entry costs me overhead expenses.
