Hell of The NorthOur 6th annual 'Hell of the North' will be held early Sunday April 20th 2014! Starting and ending at the Cedar Beach Pavilion at Musselmans Lake. (Course Map) The epic spring classic with 125 kilometers of the most amazing dirt and gravel roads around make this truly one of the hardest events of the year! It promises to test your early season fitness. As always the HOTN route will include rail trails, dirt roads and some of the area's nicest climbs. Cyclocross and mountain bikes for this wave. There are sections you will have to dismount. Road bikes are not recommended, MTB shoes and pedals are!
HECK OF THE NORTHReturning for it's 3rd year, we have an incredible, alternative route (Course Map) for anyone who wishes to be tested but doesn't want to break their will or their bike the first weekend of the season. The HECK of the North is a 75 kilometer route that will still include many of the amazing roads used in the HOTN but there are no off-road sections, farmers fields, or the nasty trench. This means you can ride a regular road bike on this beauty (leave the $10,000 bike at home though!). Both routes are sure to test you and both promise to be an amazing day out on the bike!
We will have muffins and coffee available in the morning as well as a fully catered lunch after the race (included with your entry fee) that includes liquid gold from our incredible sponsor Barnstormer Brewing and chili from Conscious Cuisine Catering. There will be great prizing and awards for the top overall male & female racers.
RegistrationSign in, number pick up, and waiver signing is available inside the Cedar Beach Pavilion on Musselmans Lake at 7:00AM on April 20th only.
