Make your reservations early if you intend to stay here. There will not be a hotel block reserved.

Our official Paris Brest Paris preparation 400k.  This is a  beautiful and challenging hilly 400k in the heart of the driftless area.  You will do every classic climb of the Horribly Hilly Hundreds and then some including the Blue Mound at the 200k mark. This is the third of our brevet series in 2022.  We are close to the longest day of the year but you will still need all the lights and reflective gear - this is a long ride!

If you are considering doing Paris Brest Paris, it's a good idea to do a 200/300/400/600k series this year to fine tune your time management and other skills.  Great Lakes Ultra Cycling will do traditional brevets this year with Brevet Cards and all the traditional paperwork in keeping with the traditions of a sport that goes back to the 1800s.  You must stop at prescribed controls/stops to have your card signed, follow all RUSA rules, and finish by the official ride end to receive credit.  You must also be a member of RUSA to ride a brevet.  If this isn't for you, GLU will have other ultra cycling challenges available.
