2014 Heroic Cancelled

It is with sincere regrets that year's Heroic Bike Race is cancelled. As race director, I was unable to return to Minnesota because of work commitments. It is with every intention, however, that the Heroic Bike Race will continue in the ensuing years on the first Saturday in October.

For those of you who looked forward to participating this year please accept my apologies. I look forward to seeing you again next year.

Best Regards,

Keith Lewis
Director, The Heroic Bike Race

A stunning contemporary homage to gravel road bikes and the "heroic" style.  Breadwinner Cycles' "Throwback B-Road" custom.  As displayed at the NAHBS 2014.

L'Eroica 2013

This is my favorite portrait taken from this year's "mother race" in Italy.  My hunch is he could ride off any "whippersnapper" who dared take his wheel!

Another "Heroic Day" for Saturday

Looks like another "Heroic" day for tomorrow's race.  The start is at Byllesby Park off the Hwy. 19 exit in Cannon Falls if you are traveling south on Hwy. 52.  Turn right and the park is about a mile down the road.  Registration is from 7:15-7:45 am.  The race start is at 8:00am.

See you on Saturday.  Have a Good Ride Everybody!
