This Bear searched through all the bike-related threads here in snowy Cyburbia. Was looking for any reference to the many different bike-a-thon type events that are held throughout the country.
In the Marquette, MI, area they hold a major mountain bike event in the summer, using mining roads and snowmobile trails to work their way downhill from the higher elevations (Negaunee, Ishpeming) west of town.
In Colorado they hold a "Ride The Rockies" event. I was just reading (Denver Post article on the net) about this year's event and route.
Every year the great rock and roll station in Toledo (WIOT) helps sponsor "Bike To The Bay".....a huge biking event that works its' way from Toledo, through farm country roads, to the ferries that shuttle riders to Put-In-Bay. I have never done this trip, although many of my friends have.....and speak highly of it.
How about you? Any experiences with these types of events? Any plans?
