Best Road Cycling Races Midwest 2024

The team at Strambecco rates the Best Road Cycling Events Midwest 2024 based on various factors, including reputation, route quality, location, rider feedback, and the overall uniqueness of the event or race.  Spanning Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa, South/North Dakota, Nebraska, Indiana, and Minnesota, the Midwest terrain features of Strambecco’s best list is generally flat or rolling. Still, routes often include steep, short climbs with a significant elevation gain over the full event route.

If we had to pick the best of the best road cycling events Midwest 2024, or those you’d classify as bucket list events, we’d start with the 8-day ride across Iowa, Ragbrai. We’d recommend the GFNY Ann Arbor in June or the Cherry Roubaix Gran Fondo for single-day events in July.  We also strongly correlate the best events and professional event producers.  In the Midwest, premiere event producers include Lifetime Events,  Monuments of Cycling, Ventures Endurance Events, and the GFNY Event Series.

Strambecco does not list every event.  We strive to identify and review events that are special and noteworthy.  If you have suggestions on other events we should consider or review, please get in touch with us here or send us a note at  Strambecco also rates the Midwest’s best Gravel and MTB events.
