    The North Star Bicycle Festival, presented by North Memorial Health Care, is a multi-day, multi-location celebration of cycling. Held in seven locations across Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, the festival features a wide range of events, from the MN Fixed Gear Classic velodrome race to the Life Time Fitness Hillfest recreational ride to the North Star Grand Prix stage race to food trucks, bike expos and kids activities, including the Park Dental Tour de Kids presented by Shimano. To date, the MN Fixed Gear Classic and the North Star Grand Prix have attracted 2,500 of the country’s top professional and elite cyclists, including 32 Olympians. This year, hundreds of cyclists and thousands of fans are expected at the Festival, which will benefit Special Olympics Minnesota.

    The center of activity for the North Mankato stage of the North Star Grand Prix will be at the intersection of Lookout Drive and Lee Blvd. The Start/Finish line and the Expo will be located near this intersection. The riders will complete multiple laps of a 20.5 mile rural circuit which uses beautiful Nicollet County roads and returns to North Mankato up the extra challenging Valerie Lane hill. Spectators will have the chance to walk from the Expo to the top of Valerie Lane to watch the Queen and King of the Hill competitions.

    When riders complete their rural circuits they will transfer on to a 3.7 mile circuit within the City of North Mankato. During each of the finishing the circuits the riders will climb the 1-mile Lookout Drive hill. While the hill is not as steep as Valerie Lane the riders will find it equally as challenging due to the frequency they have to race it. This challenging course will provide the riders with two unique climbs which are certain to dictate the outcome of the race.
