There is a bigger and better Green Lake 100 bike ride coming your way in 2019! If bicyclists are looking for a challenging, yet fun ride featuring numerous routes of scenic beauty throughout the area, they need to look no further than the second annual Green Lake 100. This event will take place on Sunday, May 26 and offers several routes that take riders on a scenic journey through Green Lake County’s vibrant communities.
The ride officially begins around 7:00 a.m. from Green Lake’s Deacon Mill Park, then riders are off to explore Green Lake at their leisure on whatever scenic route they choose (The Minnow, The Perch, The Lake Trout, or the Muskellunge.) Registration cost includes a dinner and music at Deacon Mills Park after the ride.
Rest stops will be loaded with good eats, plenty of water and sports drinks to fuel you for the rest of your ride. They are spread out approximately every 20 miles and will be listed on the map presented at registration.
Routes will be marked and support vehicles will be available to assist riders.
There is no designated mass start time for participants. Instead, riders need to plan to depart as early as 7:00 am (sunrise) and no later than 10:00 am on the day of the ride, depending on their anticipated pace and planned distance. In order to ensure participants reach rest stops during operating hours, please depart during the specified window. Slower riders and those planning to ride the longer routes with multiple stops should depart earlier in the day.
Please join other riders at the end of the ride to enjoy a meal and relaxing music at the Deacon Mill Park upon finishing. The music will be provided by Green Lake’s very own Dan Braaksma. More information about the meal and specific routes will be coming soon!
