Black Bear Cycling
The Bearscat 50 presented by Black Bear Cycling is returning for its fifth year in 2015.
The race will have a Field Limit of 300 Riders. The Field limit is due to an agreement with the Park and not because we only want 300 riders. If it were up to us we would open it to anyone that is willing to take on the terrain of the park and suffer for the day.
No Annual USAC License Required.
The race will be held on Sunday, June 7, 2015 and will consist of 2 x 25 mile laps for a total of 50 miles of mixed singletrack, double track and fire roads covering some of the best riding in Northern New Jersey. Many have seen a small portion of the park in our annual Wawayanda Spring Cleaning race held every May. You can take in that race in May 2015 also to get a preview of some of the trails you will be seeing but for this race you will see a whole lot more of the park.
Camping available
For 2015 this will be free of charge at the Park's group campsite. This is primitive camping. Tents only, No RVs.
The 2015 Course is similar to 2013. If other options become available and it would make the race better we will entertain those options. Course may be altered from original plan in the event of weather or other uncontrollable conditions. Map
Entry Fee includes race fee, event specific item, post event food. Registration opened January 19th 2015.

There will be NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION. NO REFUNDS. If you sign up in January and then decide in June you haven't done your off season training it will be up to you to sell your spot and notify us of the change. There will be a fee of $10 to transfer entries.
