Joe Cosley Pancake Ride

August 3, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - August 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


It’s only a race if you want it to be. To be honest it’s an adventure/endurance race on a bike, but again you don’t have to race, you could team up with a couple friends and treat it as a gentleman’s ride.  

The entire loop is 140 mile, 15,000’ of up and down, with one checkpoint at mile 70. You have the opportunity to have a drop bag at this location. The Polebridge Mercantile will host the mid point stop and a bear claw pastry from their famous bakery will be included in your participation fee. You may see a few cars, but for the most part you’ll have the roads to yourselves.

There is no on course aid or roaming mechanical support. You are responsible for your own well being and any mechanical mishaps that may occur. You need to be equipped for any inclement weather and or mechanical problems. You will also need to carry enough food to get you through the ride, there are no stops along the course for resupply except Polebridge at mile 70. Potable water is not available on course, you will need to carry some type of purification device, we recommend Steripen. There are dozens of creeks, streams and springs along the route to stop and refill from.


Joe Cosley, “Outlaw Legend…”  It would be safe to say that Joe would despise eating waffles as a hardman, saying “waffles are for pansies”, or “friends don’t let friends roll on anything less than a 40c”, “pave, what’s that?”  Mountain men eat pigs in a blanket and chase it down with whiskey.  Everybody has a bit of a scofflaw in them.
