MorningsMain Check In and Opening MeetingEagle River to Tomahawk Century Options


Mornings
Each day will begin with the following itinerary:

  • 6:00 - 7:00 am
    • Breakfast served at the main lodging site
  • 6:30 am
    • Route support services begin
    • Participants may begin departing from the main lodging site and the supported hotel
  • 7:30 am
    • Baggage truck departs the main lodging site
    • All participants must have departed the main lodging site and the supported hotel

Main Check In and Opening Meeting
The main check in will begin at 5:00 pm on Saturday at the Eagle River main lodging site, and the opening meeting will immediately follow the main check in. The opening meeting should conclude around 6:00 pm, which will still give you plenty of daylight to set up your tent and sleeping bag if you haven't already, get dinner, get any last minute mechanical work done on your bike, and get ready for the ride the next day.

Though very unlikely it is possible that our transportation service from Prairie du Chien to Eagle River will not arrive in Eagle River or be able to begin the main check in and opening meeting by 5:00 pm. If this happens we will begin the main check in and opening meeting very shortly after the transportation service arrives in Eagle River.

We will not offer any on road support services on Saturday. Our first day of supported cycling will be on Sunday.

Eagle River to Tomahawk Century Options
There will be two separate route options if you want to ride an optional century (100 miles) on Sunday. Both routes will stop at our rest stop in Phelps then ride back to our main lodging site in Eagle River for a rest stop there, and proceed to follow the base route from Eagle River to Tomahawk.

Land O' Lakes Century Option
On Sunday morning we will transport you and your bicycle from Eagle River to the Forest Lake Country Store in Land O' Lakes, WI where you will start your ride on the Land O' Lakes bike path. From there you will bike past Lac Vieux Desert lake, the headwaters of the Wisconsin River, to our rest stop in Phelps. You will also cross the Wisconsin/Michigan state line and bike for a couple miles in the upper peninsula of Michigan, and truly be able to say you not only biked along the entire length of the Wisconsin River but also the entire state of Wisconsin!

If you want to ride the Land O' Lakes century option you will need to pre-register and pay $25.00 for our Land O' Lakes Century Option Transportation Service. All bicycles must be loaded onto one of our support vehicles on Saturday evening. We will depart the Eagle River main lodging site at 6:00 am Sunday morning and stop at the Eagle River hotel on our way out of town. The trip to Land O' Lakes should take about 30 minutes and we expect you will start riding by 7:00 am at the latest, including the time to unload bikes. We will not have a rest stop set up in Land O' Lakes so you will need to load up on snacks, Gatorade, etc. before you leave Eagle River. There will also be an additional $30.00 fee to transport bicycles that require special handing and care (recumbents, e-bikes, tandems, etc.) However a tandem bicycle will not incur an additional fee if both people riding it register for the transportation service. Trikes (any bicycle with more than two wheels) are not allowed due to our inability to easily and quickly transport them. If you register for the Land O' Lakes Century Option Transportation Service and later decide not to do it we cannot give you a refund.

In order to transport everyone to Land O' Lakes we may need to rent a school bus immediately after the regular registration closes - unfortunately we must do so then due to bus availability. Accordingly, after the regular registration closes the price for the Land O' Lakes Century Option Transportation Service will double to $50.00 and we cannot guarantee availability after then.

Phelps Loop
The other century option will be to ride from Eagle River up to our rest stop in Phelps, turn around, and then ride the same route back to the Eagle River main lodging site. You must arrive at the Phelps rest stop before it closes at 9:45 am and we strongly recommend departing Eagle River when the route opens at 6:30 am. This option will be longer than the Land O' Lakes option, but and you won't need to pay any extra money for the transportation service or have your bike loaded Saturday evening and you will be able to get a slightly later start on Sunday morning.

Please note that we will no longer be able to support anyone who also wants to ride a double metric century between Eagle River, Phelps, and Land O' Lakes due to manpower, vehicle, and route timing constraints.
