The Brute

The registration is open for "The Brute." Starts in lovely Arcadia in Trempeleau County, WI. Sign up and go. You know you want to....
http://www.spreetouring.com/Brute%20...ge%20Ride.html

Map and cue sheets are not up yet. If anyone has ridden in this area, they can vouch for the hills and the scenery. Should be a great ride. Kinda spendy at $60, but that does include a shirt.

I have ridden The Brute (100K) the past two years with my wife and some friends. It is a REALLY nice ride. Don Curtis puts on a great event. Sign up early and often.

If you are coming from the South, consider staying in Trempeleau or at least eating at the Trempeleau Hotel.

Registered a week or so back. Not sure, but I'll likely be camping 45min south on the bluffs of Perot State Park the night before. I consider it a warm-up for HHH with slightly different topography. And I'm really committed since it gets me out of a wedding my wife is in. *pumps fist in glee*

Beautiful area, BTW. Stayed at Trempeleau Hotel several times, and have camped at Perrot a lot, too. Hotel can be kind of noisy on a Friday or Sat. night, since the rooms are all above a bar. One time had a full wedding reception party going on out in back too.

Goes with the kilt perfectly. I'm only half joking, too.
