Miesville FiftySix

APRIL 26th, 2020

We are very excited about 2020, and the 6th Annual, Miesville FiftySix gravel ride. If you are new to our ride, or a returning participant, we want to share with you a bit about how we are stoked to be part of the gravel and cycling community, and how we want to give back. With your help we can do some really good things for people in need locally. Registration for the MF6, historically, has been free to the rider. This year we are going 100% full on charity. You will be able to register with our charity partner, 360 Communities. This is a change, and this change will change lives. We want your support. We believe you will want to help!

 360 Communities Registration will open sometime early in 2020. Last year in less than a day you helped raise over 14 thousand dollars for people who are in need of food, shelter, education and more. What a great community we are a part of. Thank you all so, so much.

*see Registration tab for more details. We are capping the event at 500 total riders and at this point will have no waiting list.

The Miesville FiftySix is a gravel road ride through some of the most beautiful parts of Dakota county and just minutes southeast of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  The route will consist of 56 miles in Dakota County and the Cannon River Valley. Many gravel enthusiasts have told us that this is one of their favorite rides of the year.

Not much will change for 2020. Some new updates, but nothing too dramatic.

The Miesville FiftySix is open to everyone and anyone who likes to ride bikes. We will be capping the event at 500 total participants, but this year with a little twist. The charity registration process will open on sometime in the early months of 2020

See Registration Tab for more details.

Parking will be in the back lot of the Miesville Mudhens baseball stadium. Make sure you don’t park anywhere where it is roped off or states NO PARKING. Overflow parking is available at Neiburs as well. For the late comers, that will be your best bet.  We are very excited for the fifth annual Miesville FiftySix

 

The Miesville FiftySix  is a true labor of love, people, and bikes. If you appreciate that concept, please help us keep it free.

What To Expect

We love the idea of simplicity.  Expectations make simple things very complex.  So what does one expect from an unsupported, free event?  The true spirit of cycling exists with an expectation that you have no expectations and live in the moment. The Miesville FiftySix is all about fun, challenge, community, respect, and of course…bikes.  As much as we appreciate racing, this is not a race; this is a ride to promote health, good times, and awesomeness. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or super gravel savvy…you’re invited.  No one is better than the other based on MPH or wattage. That’s boring.

Miesville is a small town of passionate people.  As a community they are embracing this ride 100%.  This is so great, and should make for many years of safe, fun, and flavorful gravel riding in the future.  Home of the Miesville Mudhens farm league baseball team and the famous King’s Bar & Grill…it is the perfect place to hold an event of this magnitude, and room to grow.  Our expectation is that we treat Miesville like our home away from home, even if just for the day. On your way out of town, wave to the locals while filling up your gas tank at the local filling station just down the street from the start.  Supporting Miesville means supporting the Miesville FiftySix.
