A challenging ride with four big climbs. This ride goes through many of the Driftless Region’s diverse geological areas, with numerous vistas of the Mississippi and Root River Valleys. You will spend an equal amount of time on the bluff tops and in the valleys. The challenging climb up Tschumper Road follows a ridge up the bluff versus a valley, like most climbs in the area, and rewards you with many views that riders say “rival those in southern Europe.” With three convenience stores and a great coffee shop (BARISTAS COFFEE HOUSE) at the halfway point, keeping fueled up will not be a problem! The ride concludes with a fast, sweeping descent into La Crescent and an easy cool down across the Mississippi River back into downtown La Crosse.

This is an Axeltree event, out of North Central Cyclery: From the dawn of mankind, the transition from summer to fall has been a special time for cyclists. Some of the earliest cave paintings show primitive men and women undergoing a critical, seasonal transition in training. You see, in primitive days, these pre-civilized cave-people would ride their road bikes after work during the summer, when the sky was illuminated from the great glowing ball of fire. But as the days progressed towards fall, the great ball of fire started to hang around less and less. Eventually, it got dark early enough that they couldn’t ride road bikes after work. They had to start riding gravel. The earliest adopters of gravel did things like ride mountain bikes, or road bikes with fatter tires on them. These were heady times. They hoped that the great ball of fire would return the following spring, and thus they would gather in a mass-ritual of appreciation for the sun, and the darkness. They would share in the social experience that was gravel-grinding. While some archaeologists and historians disagree, there is evidence to suggest that these early cycling group rides were the foundation for a fundamental shift in human existence, from solitary individuals to small social groups that were the precursors for society and civilization. Here at Axletree, we’re huge suckers for history. And thus, we are honoring the prehistoric roots of gravel cycling. –Axeltree website, North Central Cyclery www.rideaxeltree.com www.northcentralcyclery.com Come join Elmhurst Cycling Club’s Gravel Grinding Team in our first official nighttime gravel grinder. This is a FULLY SELF SUPPORTED event; there is no SAG or on-course rider support. This will be a challenging ride. To participate in the event you will need: (1) bike suitable for 50+miles on gravel (loose gravel and B-roads, at night) which could be a gravel bike, a mountain bike, a touring bike with big tires, a fat bike, a hybrid. A road bike with 23c tires is not recommended; (2) Helmet; (3) Headlight, it must be able to last 5 hours. (4) Taillight, it must be able to last 5 hours. (5) Tools, tubes, CO2; (6) Food and hydration for 50+ miles; (7) a strong desire to be adventurous riding as a team in the moonlight. After the ride, we will be having a post ride celebration of gravel breakfast (location and details TBD.) Please contact me via e-mail if you are interested in participating in this event as future e-mails will be sent to a private e-mail group of those interested in this unique and exciting experience. Additionally, if you have any questions about your ability to participate in this event, please contact me. Again, this will be a challenging ride. This is loose gravel on the B-roads of DeKalb, not limestone gravel of the Prairie Path or Great Western Trail. 14-16 mph.
