Changing it up a bit this year. Our normal opening day ride is the Fennimore 200K but for this outing we're going to do our "Where Fledglings Dare" route. This route features long runs on the ridge tops (and some steady but not too steep climbs to get there!) with what in realtor parlance are … Continue reading "Season Opener 200K"
What better way to kick off the year (and test the legs!) than with a route that has a great mix of climbing, spectacular ridge top vistas and a final relaxing roll-in from Spring Green? We'll celebrate the occasion with our "Where Eagles Dare" 300K route. We've done this one several times and it's always … Continue reading "Season Opener 300K"
Similar but different... This is the same route as the 200K we held that started in Fitchburg with the start moved to Spring Green. There are a number of hotels in the vicinity of Spring Green and of course you can always stay in "the big city" and drive over in the morning. Here are … Continue reading "Spring Green 200K"
Like the 200K on the same day, similar but different. This route is identical to the 300K route we did out of Fitchburg (courtesy of Andy Q.) a few years ago but with the start in Spring Green. Here are the details: ACP 300K, 190.9 miles, 11,840 feet of climbing, ridewithgps link here. Complete the … Continue reading "Spring Green 300K"
This is a route that we always enjoy doing. Why? Quiet roads, ample stops for refueling, through the Amish areas of Ontario, Norwalk and Cashton, challenging but not overly brutal climbing mixed in with some long stretches on ridge tops and through river valleys. 124.7 miles, 5276 feet of climbing, ACP certified Ridewithgps link: here … Continue reading "Nowhere but Norwalk"
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 … Continue reading "Wildcat Mountain Wander 300K"
The brief for this ride is the same as the Norwalk, Wildcat Mountain and Cranberry Country rides: challenging but not overly brutal climbs mixed with long stretches on ridge tops and rolling through river valleys. Store stops placed at regular intervals to give you a chance to refresh and regroup. Lots of beautiful scenery and … Continue reading "Back in Black (River Falls) 400K"
This is "Version 2" of an event that we've held several times. V2 breaks things up a little differently. The first day is shorter, the second day is correspondingly longer but has less climbing (in feet/mile) than the original version. Here's the brief: ACP sanctioned, 373.7 miles, 14,015 feet of climbing, full ridewithgps route here … Continue reading "Cranberry Country 600K"
The 8K600K A.K.A "The Super 8" (my term which you have to admit is catchier than the ACP moniker "BRM of 600K with 8000 meters of climbing") is newly formulated beginning in late 2022. The new rules are that it be an ACP approved 600K with 8,000 meters of climbing as verified by OpenRunner. Other … Continue reading "Summertime Super 8 Silliness"
