  • New for 2013!

  • New for 2013!New Layout at MATC Mequon: We have reconfigured our layout at MATC Mequon for this year. Our new arrangement will allow for more controlled traffic flow and parking. Our tented areas will now be set up in the West Annex Lot with overflow parking and luggage drop off in the West Lot where weve been set up in years past.

    No transportation to/from Appleton or Madison: It is no longer cost effective to offer this as an option. We will however, still transport riders back to Manitowoc on day two.

    One-day Option for BOTH days!: The one-day option is back, but we are now offering it for both days of the ride. Please note that we will not offer transportation back to Mequon at the end of day one.

    Cheer Teams: This year, we plan to have designated cheer teams throughout the route. Were inspired by all of our riders and want to show them our support by greeting them with smiles, and lots of cheer!
