Bear Valley Springs is hosting a special event as part of its three-day long Independence Day celebration, but this time it consists of miles and miles of challenging bike paths.
This marks the first annual "Challenge of the Bear" event--it's a time to celebrate the United States while brining more tourism to the area.
Hundreds of bikers turned up bright and early to get started on their miles-long challenge.
The courses included three different levels--a relatively easy 12-mile ride up the Bear Valley Spring Mountains, compared to the hardest course, consisting of 61-miles of steep terrain and curvy turns.
While those who dare take up the challenge work through the sweat and tears, families and kids enjoyed what the rest of the event had to offer, including games, food, fun, and even a hot air balloon ride.
