Join us for the first year of what promises to become a Fall classic! This challenging, timed ride through pastoral Calhoun County, IL offers three routes:  the 120 mile Gala, the 60 mile Red Delicious or the 30 mile Granny Smith.

Registration includes: an exclusive t-shirt, themed rest stops, printed and digital maps, expert SAG support, and a rockin’ post-ride party featuring craft beer, a hearty meal, and live music. Prizes will be awarded for each finisher and special prizes for each category winner.

The Appleknocker is the last of three great rides that make up the MO Gran Fondo series, presented in partnership with Big Shark and the Lupus Foundation. By completing all three Fondos you will receive an exclusive t-shirt, a victory party after the Appleknocker, discounted entry on next year’s Mo Gran Fondo and recognition on our websites and social media.
