2020 Dairyland Dare CANCELLED

Although Wisconsin is starting to reopen, we are still living in a time of uncertainty. We have been working diligently to determine how to effectively proceed with hosting the Dairyland Dare in a safe manner for our participants, staff, volunteers and spectators. We really appreciate your responses to the survey we sent out a few weeks ago! However, through working with the City of Dodgeville, Iowa County, and the Iowa County Health Department, and with Wisconsin recently experiencing an increase in cases, we feel it would be irresponsible of us to proceed with the ride in 2020.  As we have all witnessed, these guidelines and recommendations are continually evolving and the future is still so unclear. With this, we are deeply saddened to be announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Dairyland Dare. As our first year managing this event, we had such excitement in bringing you all an amazing ride. With having back to back cancellations now we can understand your frustration. This year's cancellation is unfortunately due to an unforeseen pandemic, and we truly hope you give us a chance to see how great of a ride this can be in 2021!

This is not the news we want to be sharing with all of you as we know so many of you want to be out there riding - and trust us, we do too! We empathize with your disappointment and we are immensely grateful for your patience and support over the past few months. We understand that no option we provide works for everyone. We ask for your understanding during these critical times for our organization. But for now, it's important that we are prioritizing the safety of all participants, staff, volunteers and spectators, along with the cities, towns, and counties we are traveling through.

As a registered participant, you have the option to defer your Dairyland Dare registration entry to 2021 or to donate your registration fee. Your donation will be used to provide front line healthcare workers a free entry to next year's Dairyland Dare. The deadline to make your selection is July 24, 2020 12 AM CST. Further details on how to make this selection have been emailed to all registered participants.

In addition, our friends at Velocity Multi-Sport Cycling would like to offer a special promotion to all registered participants! Bring proof of registration to Velocity Multi-Sport Cycling and receive a pre-event tune up at a 50% discount! Normally $50, that's only $25! These are by appointment ONLY, no walk-ins allowed. Offer is valid through July 24th, 2021. 

Stay healthy and safe and keep riding! We hope to see you all in 2021!

Set in southwest Wisconsin, the land untouched by glacial flattening during the last ice age, the Dairyland Dare offers some of the most extreme hills in the Midwest. The area is characterized by steep, forested ridges, and deeply carved river valleys.

Pick from 4 one day challenges: 50K, 100K, 150K, or 200K. We welcome road and tri-bikes alike. Scheduled four weeks prior to Iron Man WI, the DLD makes a great last big ride before starting your Ironman taper.

Riders will climb through the historic streets of Mineral Point, WI and across the scenic countryside of Iowa County (WI) along their quest to cover from 50km to 200km before the sun goes down. Many of Wisconsin's steepest climbs are located throughout this region. With an abundance of volunteers from around the community, our support is second to none. Rest stops are well staffed and very well stocked with more food and sport drink that you could possibly consume. On course support is ever present and mechanical support is provided at every rest stop.

Then join us at the post-ride party and enjoy music, laughs and a meal that won’t leave you hungry!

Official Ride Start Times:
200K starts at 6:15 am
150K starts at 6:30 am
100K starts at 6:45 am
50K starts at 6:45 am

*** START LINE CLOSES AT 7:15 am ***
