The Eager Beaver 100 is an endurance gravel race which takes place on the roads and farm lanes south of Collingwood.   This event offers three distances to challenge everyone from the novice to the seasoned racer – 50km, 100km and 160km (100 miles).   Regardless of the distance, the course offered tire-shredding downhills, lung-busting climbs, beautiful scenery, and for much of the race this year, what can only be described as biblical amounts of rain.  Ten members of the LapDogs Race Team and Cycling Club were up to the task. Congratulations to all who participated. From all appearances, it was a tough long day on the saddle.
