Whether you do all 87 laps or just one, the Lake Alice 100 is a great way to kick off spring and help make Fergus Falls a better place to walk and bike.

When?

Saturday, May 12 at 9:00 a.m. (pictures and mass start, though you are welcome to join the ride any time!)

Where?

The ride will be around scenic Lake Alice in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Registration, food, and other activities will be centered around St. James Episcopal Church on the southwest corner of the lake.

What?

The "100" indicates it's a century ride -- 100 miles in one day. That's 87 laps. But you don't need to do that many! Do one, do a dozen, or do them all! It's up to you. If you're Canadian (or just want to be one for a day) and want to go metric, 100 kilometers is 54 laps.

Why?

We like to think of it as a good way to celebrate spring, to enjoy the companionship of riding with hundreds of other cyclists, and to show off Fergus Falls.

The ride is free, but donations will be accepted and will be used to further our mission of making Fergus Falls a better place to walk and bike.

How?

Just show up on your bike! Big or small, new or old, fancy or plain, it doesn't matter! The ride around Lake Alice looks good from any kind of seat. Don't have a bike? Don't worry! Bikes will be on hand that you can check out for free!

Pedal Fergus Falls encourages the use of helmets at all events.

Parking

We'd love love love to see people rolling in from all directions on their bikes. But we know that's not always possible. Parking will be restricted around St. James Church; we suggest using the side streets around Lake Alice or parking in one of the downtown lots to the south of the lake. Despite what the signs say, there are no time limit restrictions, and with your bike you are only a short ride away!

As a courtesy to other riders and yourself, please do not park on Lakeside Drive.

Food and drink

Water and Gatorade will be available free of charge. We will also have snacks like energy bars and fruit for all riders. We'll fire up the grill later in the day and grill hot dogs to replenish those lost calories.

Feel free to bring your own food as well and do it up, picnic-style.
