    Seems some trails where trashed by logging. And then more trashing by a couple of horse races. So Dan has had to go make some route changes to work around it all.

    I am now fully recovered from my food poisoning bout and will do the race. But I will do the 80 km version.

    Does anyone know where is the transition for the 80km course. I assume that after the first loop (53km) we will go directly to Aid Station #2, after which we will cover 13km to Station #3 and then another 11km to the finish. Anyone can confirm?

    I hope Dan gets to see this.

    Whew. That sounds complicated, Tom. I think it might be safer just to do the hundred eh? Spin around three times, easy peasy.

    was out in Mansfield last night. Dan has done a lot of work cleaning up the trails.

    The fire roads are very sandy, typical Mansfield

    Should be a great event for anyone who is doing it.

    I am not mentally ready for a 9+ hour ride. Or too lazy. Or too much of a wuss. Are you doing the full 100 miles Dave?

    I am wussing out. I'm going to have a beer or two on Friday night and sleep in on Saturday morning.
    Last years race was great and I wish I was doing it this year, but it's not quite possible.
    Cheers, Dave

    The forecast for Saturday is highs of suffering with pain.

    Pack your Jens Voight pajamas.

    Great day out there today, temps were perfect. I took part in the 53k simultaneous relay - my new fave format and distance. 9am start and across the finish line by noon. Perfect. Thanks Dan

    I heard that Veteran Youth set the fastest lap time for a relay team.

    Yeah I thought that was pretty good until I saw DH put down 2:37 on lap 2 of 3 in the 100 miler.

    As I said after I finished: "You know what I want to do right now? Not ride another two laps!"

    I know this is an old thread but I didn't see a better one to post in after a quick search.

    I rode the Mohican 100 last weekend and now I'm thinking of trying the Eager Beaver for a change of pace. I can't find a lot of info about it and was wondering about aid stations and how many people enter the race. It seems to be much smaller of a race compared to the 600 riders in the Mohican which I think I would find more enjoyable. How many people do enter the Eager Beaver? Are there places to stay near the event? I know there is a course change for this year, but does anyone know how far apart aid stations are and what they offer?

    I have been on the website for registering for the race but it isn't really informative. Thanks for any info you can give.

    Negotiating with my wife to leave on holidays a little later so I can do this.
    Want to do the 100 miles to give my a$$ a good kicking. I've done Centurys on my road bike but never on my MTB.
    Should be interesting.

    I tried the same thing for that weekend, but I got shot down, so no go for me for the race.

    As for places to stay, if you book early enough there are cabins at the outdoors centre that you can rent. Sometimes they even let you pop a tent worst case. If that's not your cup of tea, Alliston is about a 15 min drive away, and there a few hotels there.

    I rode the 100 mile version of the Mohican 100. It was tough, really tough and I'm not so sure I would do it again. Oddly enough I want to try other 100 milers and the Eager Beaver seems like a good one.

    Thanks for info on where to stay. I saw pictures of the cabins but didn't see any indication they were for rent except for camp trips for schools or groups. I will probably tent camp if I go up there for the race but I'll check out Alliston. 15 minutes isn't far to drive in the morning for a ride.

    Hey guys, just thought I would post a quick note. sorry I missed the thread earlier...
    it will be smaller than Mohican. Hoping for around 100 in the 100 mile. The course change has been a challenge as the weather has not been cooperative and the trails change each year. As well we have lots of new land and new people to keep happy. A definitive course map with feedzone locales is moments away.
    The final pricing for onsite accommodation is also moments away. Will be VERY cheap to camp on site and we are using the Field Centre so no cabins, but 48 beds in 4-6 person rooms with showers.
    Thanks for the interest! Hope to see some of you out there. If you aren't racing/riding remember there is always need for some volunteers.
