Race Canceled

We regret to inform folks that this years event will not take place.

Many personal, business and administrative reasons led to the canceling of this years 4th of July race. 

Road construction did lead to detouring the course.  A miscommunication between myself and the city about chip sealing 5th street occurred, making our detoured course not possible as well. The city was not aware that it would affect the race, and I did not inform them of the issue.  

We had the option of rerouting the course a third time, which would have still allowed the event to continue.  We chose not to do this as the available route would not be ideal for the race, would have further inconvenienced city residents ,and would have altered the event negatively. 

Throughout this whole process the city administration, police department, and street department have been wonderful to work with.  As always they have been accommodating and have helped us whenever we've had questions.

We are looking forward to the race next year, and plan on holding the race on it's original course as it has been then. 

Questions about this can be directed to my email

We apologize, these things are beyond our control.  We do plan to bring the race back for next year, and hope you will attend.

Thank you, Ben and Jake.

Another good year

Thanks to everyone who came out and raced, it was a great day. Great weather, good roads, and good racing.

And of course a huge thanks to the volunteers. Without them there would not be much of a race.

Results can be found here.

See you all next year!

It's time again.

New pavement too! And back to the original course.
Registration at USA cycling via your account, or day of.

Should be a good year. The 4th is on a Monday this year, which means you can go to your cabin AND bike race in the same weekend. What could be better.

Any questions just ask.

Due to issues with the preregistration website the day of price is now going on sale. Day of is now $30, pre-reg is still slightly cheaper. If the website is working, it also makes life a bit easier for both you and I!
See you Saturday, the weather should be good.

Updated Flyer (again)
