Dairyland Dare

August 11 2018
Dodgeville, Wisconsin, USA

Set in the bucolic hills of Southwest Wisconsin, the 1-day Dairyland Dare offers a memorable day of challenging climbs, fantastic foods, superior support, and scenic splendor for cyclists ranging from the avid enthusiast to world class athletes. The hills in the area are not considered huge by many, but by the end of the day some riders will have climbed over 13,800 ft - the equivalent of Mt. Mauna Kea (Hawaii's tallest peak). A series of supported events from 33 miles to 190 miles. The third of three endurance rides in Wisconsin that comprise the Wisconsin Gran Fondo Series.
