5 Reasons to Ride the Spring Classic

Registration opens Jan. 1st

Need motivation to get back on the bike?

Here are just some of the reasons the Peninsula Century Spring Classic is a great way to see Door County by bike. The ride returns to Baileys Harbor June 20, 2020. Registration opens Jan. 1.

1. Less traffic. The crowds are still pretty light in Door County in mid-June, and organizers take pains to take riders on less-traveled roads for safety and fun. 

2. Fewer riders. The Peninsula Century Rides are capped at 1,000 riders to make for plenty of room on the roads for our participants of all ages and leave room for vehicles.

3. Great course support. There are six rest stops with great food and beverages for riders, and routes marked with chalk and signs at every turn.  There are also four SAG vehicles roaming the routes to pick up riders who blow a tire, suffer an injury, or otherwise can’t finish the ride, and bike mechanics staffed at the starting line and each rest stop.   

4. Post-ride fun in Baileys Harbor. Back at the finish line riders enjoy live music, lunch from Thyme Cuisine, beer from One Barrel Brewing Co., and Tapuat Kombucha all under the tent in the center of town. Those doing the 25 or 50-mile routes have have time to check out the Door County Beer Festival that afternoon.

5. A great price! You’ll experience a great ride, great route, and great ride support all for a much better price than similar events on the peninsula.
