Fall Challenge Features Great Scenery, Great Food

Tacos on the beach from Thyme Catering. Cherry pie and ice cream. Cold brews from One Barrel Brewing Company and refreshing kombucha from Tapuat Kombucha. 

These are all waiting at the finish line of the Peninsula Century Fall Challenge bike ride on Saturday, Sept. 14. The ride starts and ends at Sister Bay’s beautiful Waterfront Park, and in between, it takes riders on an unrivaled tour of northern Door County on one of four great routes. Adventurous riders can take on the 100-mile route, which includes the King of the Hills challenge: a competition featuring three hill climbs in a race for the King of the Hills title. 

Riders with less mileage under their belt this summer can cruise on the flat, 25-mile route, and those in between can choose from 50- or 62-mile options. All routes take riders down less-traveled back roads, off the main drags and away from traffic as much as possible, and they include great rest stops stocked with snacks, beverages, friendly volunteers and specialty food items from local restaurants. 

Enjoy it all – plus live music from Frank Maloney and his Big Country Unit – on the pavilion stage. Fees increase Sept. 1. Registration is limited to 1,000 riders. To sign up, visit
