FOOD

We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s Spring Classic bike ride in Baileys Harbor will feature food from Thyme Catering, the premier Door County caterer helmed by well-known Door County chef Karl Bradley and his wife Tonda Gagliardo.

The husband-and-wife team, known best for their long tenure wowing diners at the Mission Grille, will prepare a lunch of southwest penne pasta, caesar salad, and rolls for the 800 riders expected at this year’s Spring Classic June 17, 2017. Thyme Catering is Door County’s finest caterer, focusing on sourcing ingredients from local growers to bring a taste of Door County to every experience. Thyme Cuisine restaurant will be opening at Maxwelton Braes resort in Baileys Harbor in the summer of 2017 as well.

Dessert will be cherry crisp from The Cookery in Fish Creek.

The lunch is included for riders of all four distances – 25, 50, 62, and 100 miles of gorgeous cycling along Door County’s most beautiful back roads and shoreline vistas. New in 2017, each route features aid stations stocked with featured meal items and bites, plus mechanic and SAG support.

At the finish line riders will enjoy a free beer from Door County Brewing Co., unlimited free kombucha from Door County’s own Tapuat Kombucha. Plus, we’ll have live music from Evan Murdock and the Imperfect Strangers, followed by the cajun sounds of the Cajun Strangers on the grounds of the Door County Beer Festival (tickets to the tasting tent are sold separately).

Loved the ride! Route was beautiful and very well marked. Rest stops were plentiful and had plenty of food and drink. Loved the ice cold beer and delicious food at the end. I’ll definitely be back!

This year was the third annual excursion for myself and some friends. The ride and beer festival are becoming a tradition for us. Always a great weekend. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
