EM1000k Rider Updates

24 participants will be clipping in for the Endless Mountains 1000k this Thursday, August 26.  The event offers a scenic and challenging tour of northeast Pennsylvania.  "...The difficulty with these Pennsylvania climbs isn't that they continue for 20 miles; nothing on those roads stays the same for 20 mi. The grades are never constant, and there's usually a lot of up and down before you start going up for good. When you start really going up, it often gets extremely steep. But while they aren't that long, they are relentless, and the space in between big climbs is filled with little rollers, some of which are quite steep little kickers in their own right..."

After a summer in the northeast that can best be described as a **Blazing Inferno**, nearly ideal weather conditions are in the forecast for the next 3 days: the riders can look forward to dry conditions in the 70F's as they head into the scenic, but challenging terrain of northeast Pennsylvania.
