Le Grand du Nord Bike Races
Le Grand du Nord Bike Races
100, 58 & 20-Mile Gravel Cycling Classics

Beginning at the spectacular Grand Marais harbor, all three events follow the shores of Lake Superior before climbing to their final destinations. With more than 5500 ft of climbing and a checkpoint view overlooking the Pigeon River and Canada, the 100-mile course is the steepest route of the three Heck Production events. The 58-mile course has plenty of climbing and miles of forested roads. The 20-mile route is a Le Grand-worthy introduction to gravel cycling with its mix of paved and gravel roads, climbing, and great Lake Superior views.

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 Ranger District.
