Inspired by Spring Classics like Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders, Cheesehead Roubaix is a 63-mile ride that features almost 10 miles of dirt and gravel. The ride will test your fitness with rough road conditions and about 2,000 feet of climbing.
Cheesehead Roubaix is free of charge, but please consider making a voluntary contribution to the Newburg Fire Department to show your appreciation for the use of its facility. There will be a donations jar at the concessions stand before and after the ride. NFD is a small, all-volunteer department. Your generosity will make a big difference!
There will be a free, mid-ride rest stop courtesy of our friends from BELGIANWERKX (http://belgianwerkx.com/). Please let us know you plan to attend so that we can ensure there’s enough food & drink at the rest stop.
Moroder Photography will be on hand again to preserve your Cheesehead Roubaix memories. Check out the great shots from last year: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Moroder-Photography-121596461198752/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1662867333738316
Cheesehead Roubaix is intended for self-sufficient cyclists. The rest stop will be your only support. The ride uses only open public roads and park paths. You are responsible for your own safety and conduct, and you are expressly not exempt from Wisconsin traffic laws. Represent the sport well.
