The Miesville FiftySix is a gravel road ride through some of the most beautiful parts of Dakota county and just minutes southeast of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. We are gearing up for Sunday April 30th, 2017. It’s a mass roll-out at 8:30am sharp from the Miesville Mudhens stadium right in Miesville. The route will consist of 56 radical miles Dakota County and the Cannon River Valley. Many gravel enthusiasts have told us that this is one of their favorite rides of the year. That’s a big deal.
Not much will change for 2017. Some new updates, but nothing too dramatic.
The Miesville FiftySix is open to everyone and anyone who likes to ride bikes. We will be capping the event at 450 participants. The registration process will open on February 1st, 2017. Although postcards are cool, they are a lot of work, so we will be dialing it back and using a sign-up form via the google forms instead. This is cleaner, more legit, and easier to manage and manipulate. So, stay tuned.
Parking will be in the back lot of the Miesville Mudhens baseball stadium. Make sure you don’t park anywhere where it is roped off or states NO PARKING. We are very excited for the third annual Miesville FiftySix (PKA: Miesville Gravel Grinder).
The Miesville FiftySix is a true labor of love, people, and bikes. If you appreciate that concept, please help us keep it free.
