Welcome

We are honored to have you on the 49th Annual 2015 Minnesota Ironman Bike Ride.  With confidence we can guarantee a better weather day than last year.  It was miserably cold, wet and windy.  We’re expecting a cool start and then warming up to low 60’s and no rain.  But come prepared like good Minnesotans.

The Day of Price has been lowered to only $55
(instead of $70).

Whether you plan to ride the route loops of 14, 27, 29 or 60, our goal is to provide you with an outstanding day of cycling.  Most riders plan to ride 60 miles or more, weather permitting. You are an experienced and hearty group of riders.

Day of Ride Info

Rider Number

We assign everyone an individual rider number to greatly speed up morning rider check-in and registration. This gets you out on your bike ASAP. If you gave us an email address with your registration, (and have not opted out of receiving our newsletters) you should have received an email with your rider registration number. Please bring this number with you on ride day.
