    The Bear

    A 100 mile event of mostly gravel roads in Wisconsin;

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    I love the emerging races. I haven't found any in NorCal. Anyone know of any?
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Looks fun. There's a gravel series around here, but they ramp up the distance faster than I can get ready. Right now I could probably handle the 60 miler they had in March. I wasn't ready for the 127-mile Oregon Stampede on June 1.

    Meanwhile, the friend who recommended this series to me is currently 527 miles into the Tour Divide.
