Sunday, June 12, 2022 -New routes and locations this year!

All routes will start/finish at Clovis Grove School in the City of Menasha.  Four new routes lengths to choose from 10, 30, 62 and 100 miles.

Choose from 4 different routes for every skill level.  Our 10 mile route takes you across the The Fox Cities Trestle Trail.  This is a Rails-to-Trail conversion of a causeway/trestle rail bridge, now a recreational trail bridge.  You continue on the new pedestrian path of Loop the Little Lake recreation trail.  The 30, 62 and 100 mile routes are all new this year!  They will take you south and west of the Fox Cities!  All routes will have rest stops at local Fire Stations and the 62 and 100 mile routes make a stop at Bare Bones Brewery!

Here are the recommended start times for our routes.  This is to ensure ample time to complete the course and hit the rest stops before they close.  You may start earlier but rest stops may not be open yet and SAG Wagon support may not on course yet.
