Tour di Lago in Port Austin

After an absence of a few years the Tour di Lago will be held again in Port Austin on Sept 9th.  I help a bit with the planning of this event and since several Rhinos have participated in the past I wanted to post info. about this and about what is new.

There will be new road routes ranging from 12 to 65 miles and a gravel route.  The gravel route provides two options, a conventional gravel road route and the Sand Road Challenge.  Both options make the trip about 38 miles.  The Sand Road Challenge option is approx. 4 miles long and is mostly very loose sand.  A fat tire bike is strongly recommended for this option and this makes for a very satisfying ride.  The conventional option can be ridden with any bike suitable for gravel roads.

See for further desicriptions, etc.:
