Le Grand du Nord Gravel Cycling Classic 2019
More than 500 gravel grinders will take to unpaved routes on fat-tire bikes during Heck of the North Productions’ fourth annual Le Grand du Nord Gravel Cycling Classic in Grand Marais. Participants will ride through the forest, mud and whatever else is along each of the three event courses: 100-mile, 58-mile and 20-mile.
All three events follow the shore of Lake Superior before turning inland with more than 5,500 feet of climbing and a checkpoint view overlooking the Pigeon River and Canada. The 100-mile course is the steepest route of the three Heck of the North Production events. The 58-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. All three events end in downtown Grand Marais at Voyageur Brewing Company.
