    Black Bear Race/Tour any BF'ers doing it

    This Sunday in Grayling Michigan.

    It is set up as a 100 mile Tour not a Race, as it is unsanctioned and has sag stops. It does attract a lot of local racers of all levels, and hit some very fast speeds. The group I will be attempting to hang with finished last year in under 4 hours.

    This will be my first year to try it and I am looking for a sub 5 hour century with no stops (I will carry 4 bottles). I am hoping to be able to hang on with the lead group and finish under 4 hours but that will be tested come Sunday

    So any BF'ers going to be there?

    Here is last years results http://results.active.com/uploads/txt/46658.txt Looks like a race to me.

    What, no one wants to do a sub 4 hour century.

    Too fast for me. I can do a 5h century. And this Sunday I'm already signed up for a criterium in downtown Chicago.
    Gelato aficionado.

    It does appear that way doesn't it. I have actually been debating on weather I should dis-ban the NWMBFC due to lack of support.
