THE WATERMOO presented by Jolly Pumpkin is a 111-mile gravel cycling road race on mostly gravel, some tarmac and a road that is no longer a road with a river crossing in the farmlands of southeastern Michigan. To successfully complete THE WATERMOO requires one to work hard and patiently like the water oxen that once roamed the land many years ago. THE WATERMOO will be an honest challenge for most and something riders will be proud of completing and is part of the Bearclaw Bicycle Co. Ultra Michigan Gravel Race Series.
