The River Valley 100 is an opportunity for bicyclists of many levels – whether you want to conquer it or survive it – this is the ride for you. Whether you choose to ride gravel or pavement our routes showcase the scenic roads of the Minnesota river valley starting and ending in Mankato. The ride is free but please register on line to help us with planning.
You can register at TBD
Start: The ride starts at 8am at Locale Brewing Company .
Finish: All routes end Locale Brewing Company . We plan to have a food truck on site for refueling after your ride. Join us on the patio or in the tap room after your ride to celebrate your accomplishment.
Please park in the yellow box areas. Please DO NOT park in the Locale Brewing parking lot. We need this space for staging the start.
Routes: Choose from 100km or 100mile paved or a 100km gravel route. Route maps can be found by clicking on the “Routes” link at the top of the page.
This is a non-supported ride. What that means to us is:
1. Know how to change your own flat tire. Bring along a patch kit, extra tube and a way to pump it up.
2. Have a plan for how to get back to your car if you can’t finish the ride. We will not have a sag wagon. We are not able to come and pick you up if you have a problem.
3. Bring your own water bottles, food, snacks, sunscreen, Advil….whatever it is that you need to fuel and take care of your body. There will be businesses along the way where you can fill water bottles and use their bathrooms.
4. Download the route to your digital device or print out the cue sheets. The course will not be marked this year.
We’re looking forward to a great ride. See you on August 27th!
