From Green Bay, head north on Hwy. 42/57, cross the bridge over the shipping channel, turn left on Michigan Street, then right on 14th.  If using a GPS locator, use the address 814 North 14th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin to get there.

COURSE ELEVATION INFORMATION
The Door County Century courses have a some significant hills.  As a rule, if you are riding on the Green Bay side of the peninsula, at some point you will need to climb the limestone bluff which lies to the east of you. Depending on the length of the course you ride, this may happen several times. As you cross over the peninsula landscape, you will experience rolling farmland and pastures. These segments can also be hilly at times, but are not as grueling. Along the Lake Michigan shoreline, expect the course routes to have much less elevation. This is an especially nice way to finish your journey and head back to the Door County Fairgrounds. 


WHEN TO START
The DCC departure window for all riders is from 6:00am -10:00am on Sunday morning.  In order for our delivery staff, rest station volunteers, and public safety personnel to fully prepare the course and rest stations, do not depart the fairgrounds in Sturgeon Bay any earlier or later than the specified time window. Please allow enough time to complete the route you have chosen before 5:00 p.m. Your planned distance and anticipated pace should dictate when you start.
