It is the celebration of Bikenfestivus! As the Autumn days grow short and memories of summer conquests dim, the brave brevetmiesters are able to summon one final surge of strength and airing of grievances. It is the last chance to ride with friends and ride partners before the Autumn rains begin quenching the good summer's thirsty earth. It is a 200k brevet so challenging and awesome it will put a ding in your ringer.
Update: If you are brave enough, and strong enough, and have enough ring left in your dinger, and think your ready for bikenfestivus, you can review the proposed routes here and visit the event post here.
