THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2020.

Share an amazing ride experience between two iconic northern towns – a historic lumbering town surrounded with beautifully clear inland lakes and a historic fishing village on the beautiful shores of the largest fresh-water lake in North America, with a purpose to benefit healthy lifestyle through clean sport and cycling.

The Gitche Gumee Gran Fondo is a mass-start cycling event in the spirit and tradition of the great Italian cyclosportives. Launched in 2017, riders gathered at the start in one of the Midwest’s most popular vacation destination towns of Hayward, Wisconsin to embark on an adventure route through the northern Wisconsin forests to the historic fishing village of Bayfield, Wisconsin.

The ride will start in Hayward, Cable or Drummond depending on your ride route and wind along 100, 80 or 60 miles of scenic, paved Wisconsin back-country roads, several river crossings, and traverses the Continental Divide. The ride starts at 8 am in Hayward and finishes on Bayfield’s Lake Superior shoreline. Return-Transportation provided; Cyclists of all abilities/ages welcome!
