Sadistic Century Invitation
Posting a reminder on our summer bike ride we do hope you will consider. The Sadistic Century in Menomonie, WI is happening on Saturday, August 18.
This small but fun bicycle ride attracts about 100+ riders each year. This year marks our 3rd anniversary (was born from the NorthStar Gran Fondo). With the idea of family in mind, we are adding a free 8 mile family loop around the lake to the mix of routes. If your family is looking to spend the day out on the town while you enjoy a longer ride, we have a day planned for you. Expect rest stops about every 15-20 miles on the longer routes, and a nice supported loop for our family friendly loop around the lake.
Sadistic Century Route choices are 60 km, 100 km or 100 miles on the beautiful roads around Menomonie. Or a 8 mile option for the family (mostly) on our new bike trails around the lake. The 100 mile ride provides one of the most challenging rides near the Twin Cities for the serious rider. Our participants come half from the Twin Cities and half from Greater Minnesota and Wisconsin. And we love getting a few Canadians, Iowans, and Michiganders as well.
Lisa D. from Minneapolis writes, “The hills were definitely sadistic, but I had a lot of fun. Excellent scenery, challenging climbs, fun t shirts, good food at the end, and lot of bike company en route and after the ride. I already have it on my calendar for next year!!”
Registration is easy on-line and our website offers a mail-in option as well. We love seeing the father/daughter, mother/son pairs of riders and the clusters of good friends enjoying a summer ride together.
Expect great weather but being Western Wisconsin plan for the unexpected. Good food, rest stops, sag wagons, good signage and maps; Wisconsin Fun all the way around. Oh and a Taco meal at the end 🙂
Enjoy your summer and set your sites for an August adventure by joining us for the Sadistic Century in Menomonie, WI. Proceeds support Stepping Stones and Menomonie Area Mountain Bike Association (MAMBA).
Thanks for your consideration.
