Bicycle La Crosse Gran Fondo
2 days, 2 stages, 2 states
Join the Gran Fondo Series— Two days with two different distances to choose from each day. Explore road routes through the Driftless region. This type of event will have riders leave together and have three timed sections for the longer route and two timed sections for the shorter route each day. It’s all for fun! Competition is based on your time to complete the sections; your finish order compared to other riders doesn’t matter. Timed segments start outside of cities and villages on low-traffic roads, and end before reentering them. This allows for a great warm-up and cool-down, while encouraging riders to take a break and visit local businesses as they ride through towns. Riders are required to obey traffic laws at all times.
This ticket allows you to choose one of the options for both Saturday and Sunday
Choose between the Apple Blossom Short or the longer ride through Minnesota
Choose between the Grandad Bluff Loop or the Middle Ridge Ramble
