Ah, no rooftest . . . Ride Around the Bear is not a suffer-fest at all (certainly not "huge") and in fact is lots easier than the Mullholland Challenge or Breathless Agony and far easier than The Death Ride or the Mt. Shasta double-metric.
I've ridden The Bear ten-plus times and while there are some extended climbs, nothing is steep. Even the climb to Onyx is from the easier side on The Bear.
