Frank's Galena Weekend 2019 - Day 1

47.2 mi, 2,924 ft. of elevation

A popular club event (in its 8th year) put together by cross-country rider Frank Hassler. Enjoy three days of riding through the beautiful Galena Territories and surrounding areas. Past rides have included sections in Southern Wisconsin and Eastern Iowa. The ride distance varies; but usually around 40-60 miles daily. Be prepared for some hill climbing! (2,000 - 4,500 feet of elevation). Use this event as an incentive to meet your season’s training goals. Overnight accommodations are the rider’s responsibility. Ride Friday, Saturday, or all three days.
