Wilderness 101 Backcountry Mountain Bike Race
The Wilderness 101 is an ultra endurance 101 mile backcountry mountain bike race. The 101 set the standard on the east coast in the early 90's and now it is back. The course is one super big loop composed of some of the best off-road riding central PA has to offer in the Rothrock and Bald Eagle State Forests just outside of State College home of the Penn State Nittany Lions. Singletrack uphills and downhills, doubletrack ridge riding, fire road climbs and a bit of pavement totaling 10,000 ft of climbing.
The 2013 course will be different from the old events of the 90's. The new course will have more challenging trails so leave your cross bikes at home. There will be 5 aid stations complete with food, beverages, and support. We have a drop system organized as you can arrange to have supplies (lights, gear, food, etc…) left at the aid stations. Racers are limited to 2 -1 gallon zip lock bags for the drops which we will provide. This is an ultra-endurance event, participants should be of strong body and mind and prepared for a long day of incredible mountain biking.
