About Us

Great Lakes Randonneurs was founded in 1987 by Lon Haldeman in Sharon, WI.  Today, GLR hosts rides across Illinois, Wisconsin and Michig as we explore the Upper Midwest. Most riders average 12-16 mph but there are all kinds from the speed pace to the party pace.   Meeting new people and sharing the adventure is always part of a GLR ride.

In keeping with our mission of enriching the places in which we ride. We have chosen The Night Ministry in Chicago as our charity of choice.  We have already donated almost $1000 to them via our jersey sale and as a portion of rider fees with each rider able to earmark even more.
