Century Ride Map
This year’s Century Ride takes you up and down the valleys and across the ridges between Red Wing and Lake City. Follow the same route from Lake City as the 73 mile riders including taking State Hwy 58 out of Red Wing. Continue on until you meet County 3 Blvd where you will take a left. When you encounter Co. Rd 2 make a right and head towards Bellechester. At Bellechester, take a left at Co. Rd 33, across Hwy 63. At County Rd 2, turn right and follow to Hwy 60. Take a left on Hwy 60. At County Rd 4 take another left descending towards Lake City. When you reach Hwy 61, follow the signs north from there back to Ohuta Park and the finish line!
From Bush St take gentle right to keep on State Hwy 58 and continue uphill, leaving Red Wing, until you meet County 5 Blvd. Make a left turn onto County 5. Continue along County 5, as it descends, eventually crossing Wells Creek, and then begin your final climb.
Staying on County 5, you will encounter the last rest area on the apex of the final climb at John the Baptist Beverage Company. Be sure to get hydrated and sample some of their craft kombucha before you begin your descent towards Lake City and the finish line.
Proceed with caution on this steep downhill and as you enter Lake City. Remain on County 5 until you intersect with Hwy 61 (also called Lakeshore Ave). Make a right onto 61. Follow 61 to Park St where you will turn left to follow the lakefront, taking extreme caution again while crossing the busy highway. Follow Park back to Ohuta Park. Congratulations! You've made it!
