This is an ALL inclusive event, we want you to try something new, challenge yourself, find like minded folks and have a whole lot of FUN doing it!!
Conceived in 2014, the Rough Road 100 is a Spring Classic inspired road/gravel bike event. From the beginning we wanted to create a community of welcoming cyclists and become a Midwest yearly staple for cyclists of all varieties. Distances of 60 and 40 miles make coming out of a Winter slumber a great opportunity to stretch your legs and start your cycling season off right! Whether that includes a bunch of races or rides we want you, and your friends, out here to share these roads and our hometown.
Early April in the Midwest is always a weather gamble; snow, rain, wind, sunny, balmy, it's part of the fun and part of the challenge to experience that camaraderie with those who toed the line!
