Claire’s Looney Ride

August 12 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, this ride is not happening in 2016.

This is a tentative ride and date. Stay tuned for more information.

A self supported, on-your-own event starting and ending in Mercer, Wisconsin.

Fee: Free (we may do a voluntary donation to some charity or something)

Route: 50 miles & 100 miles. TBD on exact route. There will be a little pavement on the roll out of town and on the way back in. Additionally a short stretch of pavement to connect. The rest is northwoods gravel. Some of the roads will be more graded ATV/UTV trails/roads and there may be some rougher sections. Still all doable with a “gravel” bike setup.

After ride fun: Plan on a provided meal and beer.

What’s with the name?  Mercer, Wisconsin is known as “The Loon Capital of the World.” As you enter the south end of town, you are greeted by a 16-foot tall loon, “Claire’ d Loon.” Read more about Claire here.
