  11. Le Grand du Nord Gravel Cycling Classic

    Le Grand du Nord Gravel Cycling Classic

    Call: 218-387-2524
    Toll Free: 800-922-5000

    Le Grand represents one of the most amazing gravel courses in the United States. Beginning in Grand Marais, Minnesota’s spectacular harbor, all three events follow the shores of Lake Superior before climbing to their final destinations. With more than 6000 ft of climbing and a checkpoint view overlooking the Pigeon River and Canada, the 120 mile course is the punchiest route of the three Heck Production events. The 66 mile course has plenty of climbing and miles of forested roads. The 20 mile route is a Le Grand-worthy introduction to gravel cycling with its mix of paved and gravel roads, climbing and great Lake Superior views.

    But I want Le Grand du Nord to be more than just amazing gravel riding. So we will have Voyageur Brewing Company host and provide their exceptional craft beer on Friday and Saturday. After the ride on Saturday, join us for live music at Voyageur Brewing. And this amazing small town will be a great place to bring the family. Don’t forget, Grand Marais will have artwork, shopping and site seeing throughout the weekend. It’s one of the prettiest spots on earth…and will play host to a great weekend of gravel cycling.

    The 120 mile course will have checkpoints at mile 58 and 87. The 66 miler will have one at mile 47. All events will run on the Heck/Le Grand principles of cue card navigation, self-supported riding ethics and physically challenging courses. All will be exceptionally beautiful. The aspens will be in full lime-green splendor, the insects at a minimum (usually!) and woods waking up to a new Spring.
