Wildcat Mountain Wander 300K
May 25 @ 7:00 am - May 26 @ 3:00 am$15.00
This was a new route for 2017 which shares the first few miles with our “Back in Black (River Falls) 400K” route so riders can roll out together. The controls for the first 90 miles are the same and there’s considerable overlap between the routes so riders doing any of the events typically held on this day should get a number of opportunities to see other riders during the first part of the ride.
The route has some testing climbs, especially the long climb up the eponymous Wildcat Mountain, but nothing too severe. Ridewithgps reports 7115 feet of climb in the 195 mile distance for an average of 36 feet/mile which is generally considered “hilly”. There aren’t any “shift all the way down and grind” sorts of climbs, mostly “pick your gear and spin” (assuming of course you aren’t riding a 39×25 as your easiest gear!).
There are plenty of food opportunities along the route with c-stores and/or restaurants available in Ontario, Norwalk, Warrens, Sparta, Cashton and LaFarge. This being the small town midwest you can expect everything to fold up at 22:00 so plan your food/water stops accordingly.
This is a lovely route on mostly quiet two-lane roads. Try it, you’ll like it!
187.2 miles, 8022 feet of climbing, ACP certified
