From the Promoter:
ILLmanzo will now be known as The Ament100. In honor of our friend who showed us this region taught us the meaning of ADVENTURE.
For all you folks that have either already done the famous Almanzo or just don’t want to drive all the way up to Minn for a weekend, come hang out with us in the Driftless Region.
The starting point is the same as last year but that is about it.
This is a totally self supported ride. And most definately not a race. There is one gas station/mini mart on the route at mile 29. So plan accordingly to make it another 40 miles after that. The start time is 10 am so it can be a one day event for everyone. And afterwards there is a small brewery/resturant on the way back home to load back up all those calories you just burned off.
This will be hard as hell if you’re not used to being on sketchy dirt roads and 20% after 20% climb. You will be 100% ON YOUR OWN! Nobody’s cell phones work out there. If you have self doubt, DONT COME.
