The ride is part of our Bicycle Festival and is called the La Crosse Gravel Classic, a 56-mile road race and/or bike tour. Your choice. The unique road-racing format is done in six parts on the gravel back roads of Minnesota, just across the Mississippi River from La Crosse. Whether you are racing or touring, the event is free, but you’ll need to register online or at the Cameron Park registration tent. We recommend you ride or tour the course on a mountain bike, cross bike, or road bike equipped with extra wide tires. The 56 mile course has 3 climbs totaling 2800+ feet of climbing. The course is unsupported but well marked by volunteers.
You can study the course in advance at Ride with GPS. Please obey all traffic laws and be extra safe. We have broken the race into 6 parts. Three of the parts are ridden neutral. Three parts are raced. The first two race parts are for fun and bragging rights, and the final race part is to crown the overall La Crosse Gravel Classic.
