Black Bear Gran Fondo
Three routes to choose from: 100 mile route with two additional concentric routes that fit inside the 100 mile route: 62 miles (metric century) and 45 miles. All routes start and finish at Hanson Hills Recreation Area (HHRA) in Grayling, Michigan, are chip-timed, are on paved roads and experience the beauty of both Crawford and Roscommon counties. 100, 62 mile routes go clockwise and cross the famed AuSable River at various points along the way. Our 45 mile route heads south on Military Road from Hanson Hills and then clockwise around Higgins Lake and back again to HHRA on Military Road. Rest stations providing nutrition and hydration, corner marshalls, and roving SAG support will be there for our riders on all routes.
Riders on all routes will travel on both flat and gently rolling hills, past lakes, rivers and forests, with points of interest all along the way. There area also amazing elevations well know to our riders that have completed the challenge on any of the three routes, and you can do it too!
