Ebbetts Pass Century - Aug. 16, 2008

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ebbetts Pass Century - Aug. 16, 2008

With the Death Ride happening today it seems like a good time to make mention of the upcoming
2nd Annual Ebbetts Pass Century
on August 16th, 2008. With 12,800 feet of High Sierra climbing over 101 miles of scenic roads is a great ride and well supported. We still have space and the first 100 registrations gain automatic entry into the 2009 Death Ride.

This ride is part of a larger weekend event called the
Bear Valley Adventure Sports Festival
. Basically it's a cool little gathering with mountain biking, road cycling, rock climbing, bouldering, and kayaking. Plus an evening bash with good food, excellent people and tons of prizes.

Other Festival Highlights:
Mt. Bike Race - Grizzly Challenge: 3 Divisions; 1-3 laps; cash prizes
Outdoor Bouldering Competition: 100+ problems; V0-V6+, cash prizes, & beautiful setting.
