Door County Century Bike Ride

Sunday, September 10, 2017

The Door County Century is the original one-day bike tour on the scenic back roads of the beautiful Door County peninsula.  The event takes place the Sunday after Labor Day each year.  This takes advantage of a motor vehicle traffic lull that occurs between the busy summer season and autumn colors in October.  Four courses are offered -- a 100-mile Century, a 70-mile, 50-mile (Half Century), and 28.5 miles.  There are 6 scenic, mostly waterfront rest stops on the Century Ride. In 2016, nearly 3,000 riders participated in the DCC.  



Headwaters 100 ride

Saturday, September 23, 2017

100, 75 & 45 mile rides through the beautiful lakes area. Starting in Park Rapids the routes vary depending on how many miles you decide to ride. The two longer routes go through Itasca State Park.

  • 100 mile ride: Follow well-marked routes through our beautiful lakes area leading you to Itasca State Park. A short hike will lead you to the Headwaters of the mighty Mississippi. The ride will follow Wilderness Drive through the park, then will proceed through Lake George, Emmaville, Dorset and Nevis; then will follow the beautiful Heartland Trail back to the finish at the Century School in Park Rapids.
  • 75 mile ride: This route will lead you through Itasca State Park, continue on Wilderness Drive through the park, then follow the course back to the Century School by way of Lake George, Emmaville, and Dorset. The ride will finish on the Heartland Trail.
  • 45 mile ride: An ideal ride for bikers desiring a shorter route. A beautiful ride through Emmaville, Nevis and back to the finish at the Century School. We encourage leisurely tourers to start early.
