What are the youngest ages allowed in the BFC?

April 14, 2013 Comments off

We recently received this query from a Black Fly friend:
Question:
What are the youngest ages allowed? And do they (the youngsters) race the entire course from Indian Lake to Inlet?
Answer:
While the BFC has no minimum age, EVERYONE that enters is expected to be capable of finishing the entire course in 4 hours or less.
The sweeper truck is instructed to arrive at the finish line by 3:30pm, which is 5 hours after the 10:30am start.
NOONE is allowed to remain on the course behind the sweeper truck.

News Alert – Plains Road Challenges

June 4, 2011 Comments off

In addition to the usual rough spots, April & May rains have caused a few washouts on the Moose River Plains road that are presenting a challenge to BFC organizers and racers. The rough spots and washouts begin just inside the Cedar River gate and continue for a few miles. Beyond that, the road is in good shape.

DEC has offered to put extra personnel in the washout areas on race day to ensure safety and Hamilton County has pledged to make the washouts passable for bikes. However, it will take more time and work to make them passable for vehicles.

We will further discuss safety and road repairs with DEC and Hamilton County on Monday. More news to follow.  Check out these photos…
