The Mississippi, Black and La Crosse rivers, scenic sandstone bluffs, and picturesque, pastoral countrysides are among the geological features found in the area known as, the “Coulee Region” and “God’s Country.”
Now, picture these same features in fall colors, and you have the foundation for the Majestic Metric Bike Ride that will be held on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013. The ride is being sponsored by the La Crosse Ace Retail Support Center.
The registration fee for the event is $25 if you register prior to Sept. 1 and includes a t-shirt, meal voucher, and an entry to a drawing for a chance to win a prize. The drawing will be held the day of the ride. The registration fee is $30 after Sept. 1.
In addition, rest stops along the route will be stocked with goodies and well-staffed with helpful volunteers. Riders may order an optional bike jersey. To register, click on the active.com link at the bottom of this page, or download the registration form and send it in the mail.
The ride offers three distances:
- 25-Mile Fun Ride
- 40-Mile Fitness Ride
- 62-Mile Challenge Ride
Rider registration and group photo opportunities are available beginning at 7:30 a.m. Participants may begin the ride as early as 8:00 a.m., with all riders on the course by no later than 9:00 a.m.
Once the ride is over and everyone has eaten, participants have the option of taking in local sights or attending the Applefest celebration, just across the Mississippi River in LaCrescent, Minn.
The ride starts and ends at River Trail Cycles in Holmen, Wisc. All proceeds from the Majestic Metric Bicycle Ride will benefit Gundersen Lutheran, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
