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.

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.
