Hi all. Our wonderfully crafted route passes directly through 3 towns (and pass close by another) as it winds around Goodhue and Wabasha counties. After starting in Red Wing, you'll pass through Lake City, Millville, and Zumbro Falls. The route will pass within a short jaunt of Goodhue.
There will be a convenience store directly on the route in Lake City. There are also fast food options available (though they may require a short detour) in the City along Lake Pepin.
Millville does have a cafe or two, but nothing of much note for you to recharge with.
Our main checkpoint town, Zumbro Falls, has a couple of convenience stores. This will be the first point where outside assistance will be officially allowed. The exact location of the checkpoint will be posted here in the weeks leading up to the race.
Goodhue also has one convenience store. In the interest of staying off of a "busy" road (58) we don't quite pass through town. We will have a second checkpoint here where you can have food or other things ready for you.
The main concern will be water. Please plan on carrying enough for you to go 60 or so miles without refilling. There are no portions of the route that will require that, but if something goes wrong er on the side of caution.
Thanks for reading, and don't forget to get that postcard in! We're up to 8 entrants or so.
