Event description

Description

Sunday, April 28, 2019 (Iron Crotchers know to dress appropriately. You may get snowed on, sunburned, or both.)

Check-in:

Please check in at Houlton Elementary School between 7:30 and 8:30 am. We ask that all riders sign in and pick up ride materials at the school. Note: There are no facilities at the school so plan accordingly.

The Route:

Iron Crotchers will recognize the route from previous years, though it is important to note that the route has some changes. There are rides of 60, 42, and 25 miles. The Starting Points along the basic route vary upon how far you want to ride. Those who desire a shorter ride will drive out and begin farther along the route. The route winds around some beautiful county farm roads. Pay attention to your turn-by-turn directions and enjoy the peaceful scenery to its full potential! Osceola is the approximate halfway point for all the routes and makes a good refueling or re-hydrating stop. Join us here at our 32st Iron Crotch BBQ!

The Shirt:

The official Iron Crotch T-Shirt is of superior quality: wicking micro-fiber fabric, an original super cool design and are available to order for $22! Men's and Women's cuts are offered in all sizes: S to XXL.


T-Shirt orders due by April 10th.



***IMPORTANT***

If you plan to bring cookies in exchange for your registration fee, please register through EventBrite. If you also want a tee-shirt, you will need to send Rea an email with your shirt order. (Eventbrite will not take your merchandise order without a "paid" ticket. Very annoying, we know.) Please send a check to County Cycles for the shirt or be ready to pay for your shirt at event check-in. Rea@countycycles.com



The Support:

The Iron Crotch committee will provide route information, maps, water, and SAG vehicles. The SAG will be available to pick up riders and bicycles in desperate need of assistance. The SAG vehicles will only be carrying minimal tools. The SAG vehicles will sweep the course at 3:00 pm, after which you are on your own. We suggest that you do a bit of riding to get you, your butt, and bike prepared before the ride. Consider a spring tune-up at County Cycles!

Directions:

To get to Houlton Elementary School, cross over the St. Croix River following Highway 36. Take the first exit for County Road E and go left across the bridge (you will go through two traffic circles). Then take your first right. That will take you directly to the elementary school parking lot. Unload your bike at the school only if you are doing the 60 mile route. *Note: Other events may be happening here as well. Please be respectful of their event and parking needs.*

Food:

You will be responsible for your own sustenance between rest stops. The SAG will be stationed at various points along the route and will have water, fruit and cookies. We will gladly accept a two dozen cookie donation in exchange for your registration fee. Please enter discount code "2Dozen" on your registration. We do boast the best cookies of any ride!

The Cost:

Ride cost includes maps, route planning, SAG support, and BBQ in Osceola. We appreciate it if all the registrations could be received as soon as possible to facilitate planning. Remember, this is a small intimate ride, but it still takes a lot of planning.

Questions:

If you have any questions about the ride or would like to volunteer, please call County Cycles at 651-482-9609. Ask for Rea, or send her an email at rea@countycycles.com.
