Thanks and preliminary results


Preliminary results below, let us know if we have any errors or omissions.

Pictures coming soon.....

Thanks to everyone that came yesterday, we really had a great time.

Special shout out to the volunteers who gave up their day to make it happen.    Without them there would be no ride.

First severe injury in 9 years, Wayne broke his collar bone and a bone in his hand.    Wayne has ridden 8 of 9 lemming rides and is a former "Lemming of the Year".   Knowing Wayne he will recover quickly so he can trounce me in the Chequamegon again.

Lemming of the year, Jeff Mandel, raised $37K for Growing with Grief.   A number of Lemmings made a contribution to his effort, thanks for your generosity to a great cause.

Ever wonder why our volunteers keep coming back and are so enthusiastic?    Each has their own reason, for Mark it is Suzanne's 6AM breakfast Bloody Mary that lubricates his vocal cords for the anthem.

Preliminary Results Up

Results are up in the tab on the right.   A few people rode a little less than intended, a few people rode a little more than intended.   But everyone seemed to have a good time.

If we messed up a time or place, let me know.

Hope to get some pictures up soon...   

Another really nice day, will be tough to match the weather again, but we will try.

Thanks again to everyone that came out, it should be obvious that we really enjoy putting this event on each year.

Thanks to our neighbors who lend us lawn furniture and support the chaos that comes with starting a ride in a cul-de-sac.

Jim, Suzanne, Justine, Ed, Becky, Barb(Nicest Lemming), Mark, Marita, Ann and Cathy.

Final Routes


See the "Race Day Details" tab on the right for all the information you will need.

Below are ridewithgps.com courses for next Saturday, again, race day details on the tab on the right with GPX files, cue sheets, and other helpful info.    

The 100K course is the same as last year.

The 100 mile course was re-routed to go through the Biscay check point twice.  It got a bit more complicated around Biscay due to some construction and unintended pavement.  But the new quiet gravel roads down around Brownton make it a very nice ride. On a recon ride last Saturday we encountered 3 cars and 2 bars in the 38 mile Brownton loop.  We like that ratio.

Overall both courses are riding firmly with the exception of the 20 miles from Biscay to Winsted which has quite a few loose gravel sections that will be challenging.

The 10 miles of Luce Line trail from Winsted to Watertown that both courses finish on will be very fast.
