Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa & Illinois C&V group? Sadistic Century - Menomonee WI

A few C&V forum members have expressed interest in the ride so I thought I would start a thread to keep track of who will be attending.

The Ride ---->Sadistic Century | A fun and challenging 100 mile, 100k and 50k cycling event

I have pre-registered for the 100K Metric Century.
If you are going to come please chime in on the thread.
I could possibly sleep 3 at my place ( about an hour from the ride ).

I may be giving the 100K a try. Should be fresh off the DD and seeking even more climbing.

And I'll give a little bump for the riding around Menominee. Very scenic.

Rode the Loggers Loop today. Easy ride but Dunn Co. has a lot to offer any cyclist.

49.8 mph descent on the 100mi course per the garmin file on the ride's site. Crazy fast, stay safe my friends...

I'll be sampling the 100k (any course maps of that?) If my experience with these hills is any indication, the site's garmin file 11mph average speed sounds about right. If doing the 100mi course, plan to make a day of it. For those local to the Twin Cities, think Stillwater hill repeats. Great fun.

Are midwesters doing Race the Lake in a few weeks? Always a great turnout and support. Wish I was closer now that I'm back in the midwest.

This was for real. The 100k had 5100 ft of gain over 65 miles. A few big valley type climbs reminiscent of the Kickapoo Kicker. By comparison the Dairyland Dare's 2015 course was around 4500.

Dude I'm glad you came over for the ride.
This ride was tough. I can't wait until next year!
My arms were toast.

Whoa, I wasn't expecting to find a Sadistic thread in C&V. :-) But yeah, a South Dakota cousin and I planned on the 100 mile route but ended up with the metric century. I came down with a cold last week (da*n co-worker who wouldn't stay home when he was sick) and going into the first rest stop, my cousin's chain tried committing suicide and jumped into the spokes. That took out one of twenty, so he got a ride into Menomonie to get it fixed. That killed 1.5 hours plus his attitude, so we both independently scrapped the full century ride and bagged the metric. He was happy the failure hadn't killed the entire ride, and I was happy my health held up so I didn't have to catch a ride back into town. Plus, I did not have to walk up any hills. :-)

We're already strategizing a redemption ride. Next year!

And I don't know what the qualifications are for a C&V bike, but I was riding my '92 Cannondale T600 touring bike, with 113k miles on it. It was older than some riders.

1995 Specialized Allez Sport Was C&V enough for me.
