Bergsteiger is the German word for mountain or hill climber. The name pays homage to the German influence in our region, and the steep bluffs that will be encountered on this ride. Winding country roads will take you from the tops of the bluffs, to bottoms of the coulees. There are three routes to chose from  37, 54, and 102 miles*. The routes are going to be challenging, with anywhere from 1800 to 4700 feet of climbing depending on distance.

*routes are subject to change

But wait there is more!  What would ride be without bikes? We have assembled a group of custom bicycle builders for The Mid-West Frame Builders Gathering. Come and spend a day with bicycle builders from our area. Grab a beer and talk bikes with the people who built them. Each paid ride entry gives you access to the show! If you are not riding, admission for general public will be $5.
