LODGING: Make your own lodging reservations at Lake Owen Resort: #715-798-3603. Our group gets very special rates for this event.  The cost for a room is $100 per night plus tax and a 3% credit card fee. Your credit card will be charged at time of booking for the special rate and is nonrefundable.  Just tell the resort you are with the bike group.  To get this special rate, the resort requests that you bring your own towels.  The resort will provide a light bed covering, so if you would like a warm quilt for your bed, please bring that as well.  You can check in at any time on Friday and stay as long as you like on Sunday.  If full, there are also rooms available in Hayward and at other lodging in the area, VRBO, AirBnB, etc.
