Cheddarman Bicycle Route (76.4 miles)

DifficultMaps-Replacement-Icon-2016
Have you been eating too much cheese for your own good? This challenging training route for Ironman Wisconsin has 68 small hills (or rollers) to give riders a fitness challenge. Originally designed as a training route for riders preparing for Ironman Wisconsin, the Cheddarman is too good to remain a triathlete’s secret. With only four moderate climbs, it would not seem to be a tough ride, at least at first glance. But once you start climbing the 68 small rises (or “rollers”), this ride proves quite a challenge. The rollers make for great fitness training for the similar terrain of IMWI. They’re also the reason the Cheddarman has become known as “The Hardest Easy Ride You’ll Ever Do.”
