Le Grand du Nord Bike Races
Le Grand du Nord Bike Races
100 MILE AND 50 MILE GRAVEL CYCLING CLASSICS 

Starting out of Grand Marais’ spectacular harbor, the route climbs to a breathtaking view of the US/Canadian border. With almost 6000 ft of climbing, it is the punchiest route of the three Heck Production events. Voyageur Brewing Company will be hosting registration and providing their exceptional craft beer on Friday evening. After the ride on Saturday, there will also be a barbecue at Voyageur Brewing. The race will be finishing at the YMCA in Grand Marais, so that while some are riding, family members can swim, take a sauna or shoot hoops.

The goal with Le Grand du Nord is to take all that we love about gravel cycling and bring it together for one special weekend. Amazing routes, great beer and food, and time spent outside with your friends and family. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Registration and more information can be found on the Heck of the North web site.

This event is in cooperation with and under a Special Use Permit from U.S. Forest Service, Gunflint Range District.
