The excitement begins at the W. S. Carow Park in Mercer! Hours are from 8 to 1 on Saturday June 9, 2018 when we celebrate the blooming of the Lupine Wild Flower in the beautiful north woods of Wisconsin!
We’ve mapped out several scenic routes ( 10, 15, 28 and 50 miles ) that will take bicyclists on paved roads through rolling hills and past lakes, rivers, forests, wildlife and miles of blooming lupines throughout the southern part of Iron County. Registration begins at 6:30 a.m. with a group start at 8 a.m. The registration fee includes a tee, goodie bag, snacks, lunch coupon, water, and SAG vehicle support.
There’s also an early “meet and greet” from 5 – 7 p.m. at Carow Park on Friday where you can discuss the bike routes and get acquainted with event organizers and fellow riders. It’s a nice prelude to the weekend and a good reason to stay overnight at one of the local lodging choices.
Enjoy lunch and drinks from the concession stand as you listen to music with a beautiful view overlooking Grand Portage Lake. The Mercer Bird Festival will be under way at Carow Park with nature displays, kids activities, demonstrations, information booths and more!
