The Belgian Waffle Ride (BWR) has seen a meteoric rise in popularity over the years, both in participants and prestige making it the marquee mixed surface event in the United States. It is also the most publicized and covered cycling event in North America with media coverage from myriad television channels, Sports Illustrated, Het Laatste Nieuws, the largest newspaper in Belgium, the Huffington Post, Velonews, Cycling News, Road Bike Action and virtually every cycling media outlet in the country. The BWR offers this growing and special breed the type of experience that requires months, if not years, to train for adequately, while requiring technical bike handling skills and, more importantly, the right equipment and nutrition to survive.
