Ten Thousand

The MidWest is often thought of as a vast, flat mass of land punctuated by endless fields of corn and soybeans. Though that is fairly accurate, there exists an area untouched by the glacial advances that have left much of North Central America with the dull landscape we call home. This area is the Driftless.

Ten Thousand will be 120-ish miles and roughly 10,000ft. of elevation gain with gorgeous views atop high ridges, thrilling descents into river valleys, and astonishingly difficult climbs that'll put even a mountain dwelling cyclist in pain.

If you don't think you can handle the full route we'll have shorter options available.  The 70 mile route is still quite a challenge for even the most avid cyclist.  Think that might still be too much? The 40 mile option gives you the opportunity have a taste of some of the most challenging terrain in the Midwest.
