|Apple Cider Century ($) - Remote: Three Oaks, MI ~ Nancie Coogan|
Remote Start: Three Oaks, MI
The Apple Cider Century (ACC) is one of the largest one-day century events in the Midwest. Route options ranging from 15 to 100 miles travel through orchards, forests, wine country and along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan.
For complete details see their website - http://www.applecidercentury.com/
You must pre-register, as the event usually sells out.
Nancie will be riding the 50 mile route at Moderate Pace (13-15 mph) @ 08:00am from the sidewalk just west of the school near the start/finish line (but you may choose one of the flat 15/25/37 mile routes or the rolling hills of the 50/62/75 mile routes at whatever pace you wish). If you plan to join the ride, please contact Nancie @ firstname.lastname@example.org so she knows you are coming!
|Oct 5-7 Farm/Art DTour ($) - Remote: Reedsburg, WI ~ Sandra Basile|
Remote Start: Reedsburg, WI.
This is one of the prettiest areas in WI especially in the Fall...plus the food and events make it a fun weekend for riders of all abilities! The Farm/Art DTour is a 50 mile self-guided tour through the beautiful, unglaciated hills and valleys of Sauk County, highlighting four communities. The route is punctuated by temporary art installations and artist-built mobile roadside stands selling fresh locally grown produce. You'll also find Pasture Performances and more!
There is no better way to enjoy the sights, sounds and aromas of the 50 mile Farm/Art DTour than on a bicycle. The hilly terrain is not for beginners, but experienced riders will enjoy this unique method of traveling the route. We have all day to complete the ride, but as an alternative for casual riders, the less challenging WI 400 Trail is accessible from Reedsburg.
For more details see Bike the DTour.
The ride takes place during the Reedsburg Fermentation Fest. Authors, bakers, chefs, scientists, chocolatiers and cheesemakers will provide plenty of food for thought.
The plan is to drive up on Friday Oct 5th, enjoy the Fermentation Fest, do the bike ride on Saturday Oct 6th and return on Sunday Oct 7th.
Here is the link for hotel rooms: Ho-Chunk Casino Resort. As of 1/22/2018 there were 55 rooms available at the Ho-Chunk, but please do not wait until last minute! The casino is located nearby on a native American Reservation. Rooms fill up fast - please reserve early.
Sandra will be leading rides at high moderate pace (14-15 mph) but the Tour supports riders at any speed if you prefer a different pace. Contact Sandra at email@example.com if you are interested.
