Le Grand Du Nord Gravel Cycling Classic


May 26, 2018
08:00 AM until 05:00 PM


The Le Grand Du Nord bicycling event on Saturday, May 26, represents one of the most amazing gravel courses in the United States. This year Heck of the North productions will introduce a new 120-mile route, which was built on the 100-mile course from previous years. There will also be the addition of a stunning 66-mile course as well as a great introductory 20-mile course. The three routes will challenge riders no matter where they are at in their gravel cycling ability.

Beginning in Grand Marais’ spectacular harbor, all three events follow the shores of Lake Superior before climbing to their final destinations. With more than 6,000 feet of climbing and a checkpoint view overlooking the Pigeon River and Canada, the 120-mile course is the punchiest route of the three Heck Production events. The 66-mile course has plenty of climbing and miles of forested roads. The 20-mile route is a Le Grand-worthy introduction to gravel cycling with its mix of paved and gravel roads, climbing and great Lake Superior views.

The weekend will include registration and a post-event party at Voyageur Brewing Company in downtown Grand Marais.
