Flambeau Gravel Grinder

September 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

This enthralling race will begin at the Rusk County Fairground and end at Memorial Park Beach. There will be three different race distances- 19 miles, 30 miles, and 60 miles. Children under 17 bike for free, while the 19 mile race costs $25, and the 30 and 60 mile races cost $40. The race course will consist of primarily gravel roads, but will also include small sections of snowmobile and ATV trail, as well as some asphalt (primarily to get in and out of the city). The race course will take competitors along Lake Flambeau and up the west side of the Flambeau River into the Flambeau State Forest (watch for elk). There will be two pit stops for the 30 and 60 mile races, where support vehicles are welcomed.  Bring whatever bike you feel most comfortable on, and helmets are required!  Afterwards, at Memorial Park there will be children's races, entertainment, awards ceremonies, food and drink vendors, and canoe and kayak rentals available all day. Come enjoy a day in the woods and on the water of beautiful Rusk County.
