100 mile and 100 kilometer routes

The routes for the 100 mile paved ride and the 100 kilometer ride are now on the route page.  If you haven’t already – you will need Strava to see the routes.  If you haven’t already, please register as soon as you can so you can ride with us next Sunday, August 28th.

Come ride the scenic river valleys of south central Minnesota.  Yeehaw!


Food options

EllieGail’s in Elysian is again hosting a lunch stop for the riders.  Lunch specials are $6-$7.  So bring some money.  For the paved riders it will be at about Mile 45.  And for the gravel riders at Mile 32 you will need to detour 2.7 miles into Elysian on the Sakatah Trail.  As I understand, the gravel racers aren’t stopping.IMG_0274

40 days to the River Valley 100

Working on the routes.  They need to be changed this year because of road construction and destruction.  The routes will be posted 2 weeks before the ride.  As I did last year there will be:

  • 100 mile paved route
  • 100 kilometer paved route
  • 100 kilometer gravel route
  • 100 kilometer gravel race

So challenge yourself and sign up for the ride.    Look how happy these riders are at the finish.  Hope to see you on August 28th. IMG_0126
