The Peninsula Century ride is an incredible experience for riders of all abilities.
The ride includes routes of 25, 50, 62 and 100 miles through the rustic roads and past the water vistas of the northern tip of the Door Peninsula. The 25-mile route offers a flat, easier course through the center of the peninsula, while the 62-mile and 100-mile routes offer challenging climbs, particularly the 100-mile route.
Join us this fall for one of the most beautiful rides in Wisconsin!
Be advised, there are several significant hills on the course. No, it's not like riding in the mountains, but it's not flat either.
The 100-mile route contains 3,354 feet of elevation with multiple climbs. We have chosen three climbs to create the Strava-based King / Queen of the Hill Challenge that all 100-mile participants are welcome to participate in at no additional charge. The combined times from the climbs will be used to crown the winners who receive a special Peninsula Century ride jersey Polka King of the Hills jersey sponsored by Door County Brewing and Complimentary entry to next year’s Peninsula Century Ride.
Planned by avid cyclists who know Door County better than anyone else, the ride is capped at 1,200 riders to ensure the best experience possible.
Experienced mechanics will be stationed at most rest stops along the route.
The Peninsula Century begins with a rollout start at Sister Bay Waterfront Park at 7 a.m. and finish with a post-ride party featuring a gourmet taco bar from Thyme Catering, desert of cherry crisp from Seaquist Orchards and ice cream from Door County Ice Cream Factory, and Door County Brewing Co. beer and music beneath a tent at Waterfront Park.
With an array of lodging accommodations just a short walk from the festivities, participants can ride to the start line at Waterfront Park, and walk to area shops, restaurants, and taverns after the ride.
