[Flyer]  [Registration]

The Ken Woods Memorial road race returns to Cannon Falls, MN on Saturday, May 13th.  Ken Woods is the first road race of the 2023 season for Minnesota, so it tends to be well attended. The race is built around a 21 mile, 4 corner circuit with some flats and some climbing. The event is fully controlled by licensed USA Cycling officials and the corners are marshalled. That means you’ll need to have an active USAC license or purchase a one-day license while registering for $15. Register online for $60. On-site registration will be available for $60.
