Heck of the North
Heck of the North

Two Harbors | Two Harbors MN

100 MILE, 55 MILE AND 20 MILE GRAVEL CYCLING CLASSICS

Created in 2009 after many days of scanning county maps and scouting miles and miles of north country gravel, “The Heck” continues to evolve every year. 2019 marks the eleventh anniversary of The Heck of the North! We look forward to a great event with always new features to keep it fresh. Stay tuned for updates via our social media links on Facebook and Instagram.

We will be offering THREE beautiful courses this year. The 100 mile course will feature over 50 new miles of remote gravel road. The 55 mile course is equally challenging and scenic. Each course will have its own checkpoint somewhere near the middle of the course featuring water and all the usual snacks to keep you rolling.

We are excited to introduce a new 20 mile Heck of the North course. This all gravel route will be a perfect introduction for new riders to the world of gravel cycling.

“Yes, these are gravel cycling events. I still think 35 mm tires (and larger) are the way to roll. But, as always, ride whatever you think is comfortable and capable of delivering you 100 plus miles (29er’s, fatbikes, beefed-up touring bikes.) The Heck is about the challenge, not necessarily how fancy your bike is. You are the engine. You have to be tough. I hope to shake your hand at the finish line. Thanks for riding with us this Fall!” -Jeremy
