The Hammer Road Rally
The Hammer was born from the love of adventure on the bicycle through the life of Edward O. Lund who left this world with the inspiration to create an event that epitomized the characteristically adventurous rides he so enjoyed.
ROAD RALLY: The Micro-Stage Race
Imagine a multi-stage road race crammed into one day. Enter the "Road Rally"--the perfect mix of competition and camaraderie. We score specific "segments" through a single day, but not the entire route from start to finish. Competing on segments is optional. The best cumulative times across all segments for the day are deemed the winners. Individual and combined segments are awarded. Your times are recorded with your personal, approved GPS device. You are required to have a Strava account in order to participate in the road rally competition. Your GPS data will be uploaded at the finish.
The easy route is accessible to participants that might consider the longer options too challenging for their current fitness level, or perhaps just want to ride a shorter distance and make it back to the post-ride festivities a little sooner. Look for about an hour and a half to two hours on the bike.
