Main Check In and Opening
The main check in will begin at
5:00 pm 5:30 pm (for 2023 only)
on Saturday at the Eagle River main lodging site, and the opening
meeting will immediately follow the main check
6:00 pm 6:30 pm (for 2023 only),
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
done on your bike, and get ready for the ride the next day.
Here for more information about our main check in and
opening meeting policies and procedures.

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.
Here for more information about our transportation service
from Prairie du Chien to 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
There will be two separate route options if you want to ride an optional
century (100 miles) on Sunday. Both routes will stop
then ride back to our main lodging site in Eagle River for a rest stop there,
and proceed to follow the base
from Eagle River to Tomahawk.
Land O' Lakes Century Option
On Sunday morning we will transport you and your bicycle
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
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
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'
Transportation Service. All bicycles must be loaded onto one of our
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'
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
handing and care (recumbents, e-bikes, tandems, etc.) However a tandem bicycle
not incur an additional fee if both
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
Transportation Service and
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
Land O' Lakes Century
Transportation Service will double to $50.00 and we cannot guarantee availability
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
and we strongly recommend
departing Eagle River when the route opens at 6:30 am. This option will be
Land O' Lakes option, but and
you won't need to
the transportation service or have your bike loaded Saturday evening and
you will be
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
