5th Annual Bear 100: May 20, 2017
Thanks to everyone who made the day a great success!
The Bear 100 will again be working with the Laona Rescue Squad. They will be providing both pre-race logistical help and will be out on the routes on the day of the ride in the event of an emergency. I am happy to announce that 100% of donations will go to the Laona Rescue Squad to help support their efforts.
Why ride The Bear 100? We all roll up to the starting line for our own reasons…adventure, personal challenge, training for a longer event, a nudge outside our comfort zone, the simple joy of riding bikes…whatever the reason, a day riding in the Nicolet National Forest is a day you won’t forget.
What is The Bear 100? A minimal support gravel road cycling event through the Nicolet National Forest focusing on self sufficiency and personal responsibility. You are responsible for yourself.
