The Burleigh County Cup near Bismarck, North Dakota has opened up registration as of yesterday.
A North Dakota Gravel Event
Description for the ride site:
“This will be a self supported event (there will not be a drop bag option this year, though you will be passing through the starting area at mile 60, so you can refuel then if needed) on the gravel roads (very hilly at times) of Burleigh County, just outside of Bismarck, North Dakota. There will be two distances: 35 miles (The Sippy Cup) designed for entry level riders and 75 miles (Burleigh County Cup). There will be a list of requirements and rules to follow (much of which are similar to Minnesota’s Almanzo 100) as well as suggestions and details of the ride.
This event is FREE of charge.
If you would like to enter the event and plan to join us on May 10, 2014 for a great day of riding, please send a post card with the following information on it:
