Coulee Challenge 1200K Aug 13-16, 2018


Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA


The Minnesota Randonneurs and Driftless Randonneurs invite you to join us Aug 13-16, 2018 on a Grand Randonnée through some of the most beautiful cycling terrain in the world that will forever change your notion about cycling in the Midwest.

Our RM 1200k route includes great roads and bike trails in Minnesota and Wisconsin with a focus on the challenging coulees of Southeast Minnesota and Southwest Wisconsin.  The terrain will have some hilly sections, with multiple, occasionally steep, hills crossing ridgelines followed by pastoral valleys and quiet, bucolic roads.  Along the way riders will enjoy passing through a number of small towns in the coulees and river towns on the Mississippi River.
