Fall Challenge Bike Ride to Welcome 500 Cyclists Saturday

The Peninsula Century Fall Challenge bicycle ride returns to Sister Bay’s Waterfront Park Saturday, Sept. 17, bringing more than 500 cyclists to the village’s new centerpiece.

Cyclists can still register for the ride online through Wednesday at, or in person Friday, Sept. 16 at packet pickup from 4 – 7 pm, and Saturday before the ride beginning at 6:30 am.

The Fall Challenge celebrates Sister Bay’s Waterfront Park, where riders embark on one of four different routes through Northern Door County. There are routes of 25, 50, 62, and 100 miles, each with aid stations stocked with fluids and great food items. All routes end at the park, where Sister Bay chefs have come together to showcase their talents and flavors with an amazing post-ride buffet.

“We’ll have Door County Brewing Co. pouring beer, Tapuat Kombucha, and seven local restaurants serving up specialties,” Dannhausen said. “We love to introduce silent sports enthusiasts to the county’s natural beauty, but also introduce them to the great food, drinks, and service our communities offer.”

Restaurants include Al Johnson’s, Husby’s, Sister Bay Bowl, Grasse’s Grill, Piggly Wiggly, Base Camp Coffee Bar, Fred & Fuzzy’s, Door County Creamery, Seaquist Orchards, and the Door County Ice Cream Factory.
