62 miles Ready for a challenge? Sign up for a new 62-mile metric century. All the sights and sounds of our 50 mile route, but with an added 12-mile loop. Please note: short portions of this route will be on dirt.

Important Note: The 62 mile route requires 30 riders to be able to produce the course, due to requirements of safety. Final decision to produce this route will be made based on the number of registered riders for the 62 mile on May 20, two weeks out from Tour de Cure Minnesota. If less than 30 riders are registered, those riders will be notified and moved to the 50 mile route. If you are considering riding 62 mile. Register to ride now!
