The Newest Door County Century Ride

The Peninsula Century will feature routes of 25, 50, 62, and 100 miles through the rolling hills and past the incredible water views of Northern Door County. With a grand roll-out start in Sister Bay from the village's new Waterfront Park, riders will start within walking distance of the area's best lodging. 

With six aid stations, a post-ride meal and beer, and live music at the finish in Waterfront Park, this ride will have everything you'll need for a fantastic experience at Door County's beautiful northern shores.

The ride is capped at 1,200 riders to ensure a safe experience for cyclists and motorists in year one. Participants will finish back at Waterfront Park, where they'll enjoy post-ride festivities on the water and soak in the Sister Bay sunset just steps from bars, restaurants and shopping. 

This Peninsula Century is presented by Door County Living magazine. The Premier Sponsor is the Sister Bay Advancement Association. Other sponsorship opportunities are still available.
