Please review your route options:

We have a wonderful 15/25-mile route in & around Itasca State Park for those looking for a shorter option.  We offer 50, 60 & 70 – mile routes for those seeking longer options. None of the routes are exceptionally hilly, but they roll enough to get you familiar with various gears. Every route has its challenge and there is NO shame in walking up a hill.  All of the routes follow quiet, beautiful roads, however, cyclists will be sharing the road with automobiles. Please pay attention.  Wind can be a challenge in the open areas of the longer routes.

  • The 15/25, 60, 70 & 100-mile options include Itasca’s Parks Wilderness Drive. The decision whether to ride 60 or 70 is made at the 30-mile mark (the Emmaville Store rest stop).
  • The 50-mile option heads South directly from the start and skips the Wilderness Drive.
  • All long routes include stops at the Emmaville Store.
  • In Lake George there is a great convenience store. Stop if needed. Here the 100 Route keeps going East while the other routes head South.

We have multiple rest stops on each route:

  • 100 mile route: Rest stops located at 8, 12, 20, 48, 71 and 81 miles.  Plus a van water stop will be on Cty 64 at around 30 miles.  In Akeley riders take the Heartland Trail for about 15 miles.  And stop in Lake George, you are there twice:)
  • Century Rider Certificate:  A little something extra.  Print out a Certificate of Completion for your 100-mile ride.

Cyclists should make sure they (and everyone in the group) are comfortable riding the entire distance of their chosen route. However, there will be sag wagons driving the routes and frequenting rest stops as well.

All rest stops will have restrooms and food/drink and mechanic support. We will provide water, Gatorade, fruit, granola bars and other selected treats. A tire pump, basic bike tools and a first aid kit will be at all the rest stops as well.
