ABOUT THE RIDE
Door County is a bike pedaler's paradise. Scenic backroads blanket a pennisula with over 300 miles of shoreline and an endless array of gift shops, restaurants and lodging options.
Since its inception in 1979, the Door County Century has fast become one of the most popular rides in Wisconsin with more than 2,000 people taking part each year. The ride is a recreational and social tour scheduled in early September -- a time when the crowds of summer have departed and the rush of the Fall color season has not yet begun.
The Door County Century Ride starts and finishes at the Door County Fairgrounds on the north side of Sturgeon Bay. Three routes of varying lengths provide options for cyclists of all ability levels. Routes of 28 miles, 50 miles ("Half Century"), 70 miles and 100 miles (Century) bring the riders progressively further up the peninsula. Rest stops spaced along the route will provide food, refreshments and rest room facilities along with unforgettable views. All routes start and end at Door County Fairgrounds on the north side of Sturgeon Bay. The finish line celebration includes a free meal, Fat Tire beer, music and NFL games on giant projection screens. Experience the scenic beauty of Door County from the unfettered vantage point of a bicycle.
