    Where - John and Kattia's Farm; 9658 E Perry Center Rd, Mount Horeb, WI; a farm in a valley south of Mount Horeb

    Why - Why wouldn't you want to ride, drink, and be merry in October?!

    Who - Anyone and their kids

    Lodging - Free overnight camping is available onsite; there is limited space for camper parking as well; the porta-johnny is back!

    Dinner - POTLUCK - please bring one dish per racer to pass (spectators can bring one dish per couple), a grill will be available. Don't forget dishes are tied to bonus points!

    Bonfire and outdoor movie - weather permitting

    Sunday – Breakfast by Coleman with bloody mary’s to remedy that hangover

    Beverages - Will be available for BYC events as well as two 1/6 barrels from the Vintage for dinner; please BYOB for all of your other needs

    Course Features - 1.5 mile hilly short track (expect 8 - 15 minute laps); Haunted barn, CX barriers, hay wagon and log crossings, teeter totter, livestock (pot belly pigs, goats, and chickens)

    Fee - $10 to cover shirts, breakfast, the plastic box with a toilet, beverages, and other misc. expenses

    Donation - The VBC is asking participants and spectators to bring 2 canned items per person to donate to the local food pantry. Let's beat the 120 lbs total from last year! Don't forget donations are tied to bonus points!

    Let me start by saying that although this is a race, it is for fun, so those of you that feel you don't like to compete should have no excuse for not coming out and having a good time. This particular event will be focused on endurance or rather how many laps can be put down and bonuses accumulated in 2 hours. This event uses a duo format so you only really have to ride for about an hour. The standard egg baton, costume, and underwear bonuses are in place. Let's get CREATIVE with those costumes and remember spandex does not count toward the underwear bonus! Most of you know what gelande quaffing entails but in case you have been living under a rock…….click on the vids to the right. Don't be intimidated by the athleticism displayed in some of the vids. We are just as health conscious as the next dude. We will go with 6 oz pours of delicious golden heaven. Sunday morning will bring bloody mary’s with breakfast to shake off that hangover from the TWO kegs from Vintage Brewing we are getting for dinner!

    A few things to make sure you bring with you:
    Teammate – Let us know if you are looking. There is always someone standing around that can ride a bike.
    Entry fee – please bring exact change and we prefer cash
    Potluck dish
    2 food pantry donations
    Costume and/or underwear - Put some thought into your costume if you want the bonus laps!
    Sleeping bag
    Weather appropriate clothes – the forecast looks promising
    Chair for the bonfire
    Beverages for your bonfire bs'ing
    Flashlight/head lamp for the late night trip to the yurt for s’mores
    Water to keep you in top shape

    Apparently the weather is going to be difficult so if you're coming out bring a pop up tent if you have it. The BYC may have its own little tent town!
