The marathon style race format lives on at the Reforestation Ramble again for 2011. We believe much of the success from past seasons clearly came from distinct differences in the overall series layout and the different styles of racing that came with the diverse race venues…..and the Ramble definitely provides a non-traditional racing experience! Again in 2011 you will find the course to be a great mix of fast wide open fire lanes, a decent amount of flowing singletrack, and the new norm for this race, a few grinding inclines to keep everyone in check. Pine groves and rolling groves of American elm and aspen make the single track fast and enjoyable, while being technically challenging. The sand based soil holds up great in moist conditions and provides just the right type of surface for great racing no matter the weather conditions, a guarantee you will find yourself begging for the finish with a smile on your face. The later date gives racers of all types one last ramp up for the Chequamegon 40, which takes place just over a month after the Ramble….so come on out for one last high mileage race as you prepare for the 40!
Please note the different start times for the Reforestation Ramble, remind yourself and fellow racers that the Ramble does not follow the traditional start times due to the distances of each category. Junior category racers take off at 9:30am, Citizen at 10am, all other classes roll off the line at 11:30am!
Although Sunday is race day, be sure to stop out Saturday for pre-riding, the Vendor/Exhibitor Zone, and Learn to Race clinics. Pre-riding will begin at 12:00 pm on Saturday.
Like most state and county trails, a trails/rider fee is required and will be collected at registration, with two day deals available. Plenty of lodging is conveniently located on either of the major highways, 43 or 41. Rough camping will be available at a nominal fee. Please remember that because of this events close proximity to the N.E.W. Zoo, there are no pets allowed at this venue.
Riding at the Camp is fast and exhilarating, so come ready to have fun. Expect to ride on hard dirt, rocks, roots, pine needles, sand, and bog spots. A great mix of singletrack and cross-country ski trails.
