Chainbreaker Ride 2018
Welcome to the official 2018 Chainbreaker Ride Tool Kit webpage, where you will find all the latest information, logos, and fundraising tips, specifically designed for our AHC North team!
We are proud members of the University of Minnesota Academic Health Center who live and work in the Duluth, MN area. Most of our members are faculty and staff who work for the regional campuses of the Medical School and College of Pharmacy on the Duluth Campus. Join us as we raise funds for cancer. It is personal for us given how cancer has impacted so many in our community and many of us on our team.
Support this cause where 100% of your donation will go directly toward life-saving cancer research at the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota.
2018 CHAINBREAKER RIDE
Chainbreaker weekend is August 10-12, 2018.
Friday, August 10: Opening Ceremony.
Saturday, August 11: Ride begins for all routes (25, 50, 100 and 180).
Sunday, August 12: Ride continues for 180-mile route.
Riders will depart out of Eagan from the Blue Cross Blue Shield campus. The route will take riders south and east through Rosemount, Farmington, and Hampton (25-mile finish with breakfast). It will then connect with the beautiful Cannon Valley Trail out of Cannon Falls and head due east. The trail ends near Welch Village (50-mile finish with lunch/100 & 180-mile lunch) where the route will veer south and west passing through the small communities of Vasa, Belle Creek, Dennison, and Nerstrand, MN. Riders will continue west until they reach Cannon City. This is where the route changes and heads north into Northfield and St. Olaf College (100-mile finish & 180-mile overnight). On Sunday, the 180-mile Riders will begin riding back in the direction of the Twin Cities. Safe to say the route will appeal to cyclists of all abilities!
