Second Last Chance 200K
June 24, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm$10.00
This route takes you over rolling hills and quiet roads to Ridgeway where you’ll get on the Prairie Farmer recreational trail which will take you to the first control in Cresco. From there you’ll do an out and back to Harmony, MN and then head to Decorah. The control at Decorah is the Kwik Trip but there are several other fast food establishments there and you can visit any of them.
Leaving Decorah you’ll be facing a couple of pretty stiff climbs on your way to Ossian before returning to West Union.
The route has over 5 thousand feet of climbing including some extended climbs and will have you wondering where the flat part of Iowa is!
Here are the particulars:
ACP sanctioned, 130 miles, 5,938 feet of climbing.
