The Trans Boreal
Okay, Europe has the Trans Alps and we have the Trans Rockies. I think it's time to have the Trans Boreal. This would be a multi day mountain bike stage race. My idea for the course would be to start in Marquette and traverse the pine forests of Michigan's U P, northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. The race could even be started on the lower peninsula of Michigan at Traverse City. Each stage would get the riders closer to the finish line in Duluth. The course would include the numerous logging and forest roads plus trails that traverse the boreal forest. The course would be like the Iditarod with mandatory daily and overnight stops at checkpoints. Something like this could become huge! Would the Teginator single speed mountain bike take part in the Trans Boreal?
