The Almanzo 100 is a gravel road race in southeastern Minnesota. Organizers expect 1,300 riders to participate in this year's event on Saturday, May 18, 2013. One of the nation's premier gravel road events, the race gets its name from Almanzo Wilder, the husband of "Little House of the Prairie" author Laura Ingalls Wilder. The couple lived for a brief period in Spring Valley, where this weekend's bike race is based.
