This year marks the twelfth annual ride through beautiful St. Croix River Valley.
The Autumn Bike Trek begins at 7 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 19, at Hoffman Park in River Falls.
It includes three scenic country routes ranging from moderate to the ultimate challenge.
The routes will be well marked and trail maps will be provided, along with Sag wagon support, rest stops and food
Cost is $20 for those pre-registering online and includes a free custom t-shirt. Cost is $25 on race day, cash or check only.
Autumn Trek includes:
Flat Forty: A moderate ride that travels south of River Falls to the Circle K Apple Orchard before doing a short-cut from the Trimbelle River/Gas Light ride to take you back to Hoffman Park.
65 Trimbelle River Rumble: A moderate to challenging ride along the Trimbelle River to the Gas Light. The route includes a beautiful 18 mile loop, from the Gas Light, that has some long hills on its route to the Great River Road, Mississippi River bluffs and its return to Hoffman Park.
100 Mile Century Climb: For the rider who wants the ultimate experience with almost 8,000 feet of climb. This ride adds an extra loop to the 65 mile ride. (no SAG support on the extra loops)
Proceeds from the Autumn Trek will be used to promote bicycle safety and education, bike/pedestraian trail enhancements and interconnected bike/pedestrian routes in the West Central Wisconsin River Valleys.
The Wisconsin DOT Transportation Grant awarded through our efforts to the Town of Troy in 1999 covers the cost of bike shoulders on both side of South Glover Road and North Townsvalley Road. Muddy Paws is sponsoring this year's event.
