September 8-10th The 2nd Annual Hodag Country Ramble
Two nights of swimming, camping, community, riding and revelry on our family's property outside of Rhinelander, Wisconsin in the heart of the beautiful Northwoods.

Registrants will receive: two nights of camping, t-shirt, dinner Saturday evening, and free beverages on Saturday night.

This is the land where I was born and raised and I'm incredibly excited to share it with my far flung cycling friends both old and new. Soaring trees, rolling hills, and beautiful lakes await you.

Route: A mix two track, gravel, and pavement. 26, 50, 85 mile options. A gravel bike or hardtail mtb will work great.
Ride fast or take it slow, all options are valid. Route will wind its way through National Forest Land, private logging acreage, quiet pavement, and high quality gravel. There are convenience stores on the longer routes and a stocked mid-ride rest stop on the long loop.

Friday: Arrive, Bandit Cross, Riders Meeting, Market, Swimming, DJ's - Gates open at Noon
Saturday: 9:00am Ride, Swap Meet, 7pm Family Dinner, Refreshments, Party
Sunday: Depart

Family Dinner: Hosted by Chef Adam Blake, there will be complimentary New Belgium Beer and La Croix. Vegan and Carnivore Options. DJ's and dancing after dinner.

Camping space on site will be limited to 150 people but there are tons of campsites, hotels and resorts in the area. Due to space concerns only registered participants will be allowed to camp on site, if you wish to camp with non-registered folks please choose the without camping category and make your own arrangements.

Vending: Bring Bike parts, clothes, stuff you make etc, to sell at the market.

On Site Camping: You will be responsible for providing most of your meals and water, except for Saturday Night's Dinner. The best bet is to be as self sufficient as possible. We will provide porta potty's and hand washing stations.

There will be spaces for both vehicle and tent camping, as space is limited we highly encourage carpooling if possible. There is a beautiful lake an easy walk from the property, or very short ride for swimming, washing up, and pumping water. The water is tanic, but is very clean and great for swimming.

We ask that you leave your dogs at home for on site camping. Don't worry, there will be plenty of our family pups around to get your daily dose of puppy love. If you need to bring your pet, please select the off-site camping option.

This land is incredibly important to my family and we're very excited to share its magic with you. We humbly request that you treat the land with care and respect, please do not litter, or damage the trees. If you're planning on using a hammock, please make sure the trees you sling are at least 8" in diameter.

Registrations are Non-Refundable
