Thanks to everyone who made the trip to Laona for the 2016 Bear 100!
Special thanks to our volunteers, Laona Rescue Squad, and T-Bobs for hosting the event.
5th Annual Bear 100: May 20, 2017
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.
