Carlsbad based SPY, one of the oldest, independent eyewear brands in the U.S. and a leader in eyewear innovation, is again producing the SPY Belgian Waffle Ride (BWR).

The SPY BWR is a grueling 229-­-kilometer, multi-­-terrain cycling race that began as a tribute to the beautiful and taxing rides staged in Belgium each spring. The course includes 11,000 feet of arduous climbing through the unrelenting hills of San Diego County and includes a relentless barrage of mud, dirt, single-­-track and water crossings. This video recaps the glory and horror from 2013’s ride:

The event will attract 1000 of the best of the biking community, including Olympians; World, National and State champions; professional and amateur cyclists; and surf, motocross and bike industry luminaries. For those not racing, there will be a two-­-day lifestyle expo (Saturday and Sunday) with more than 40 product and food vendors, in addition to beer gardens benefitting the non-­- profit Challenged Athletes Foundation and Keep A Breast foundation. It will include tents from the race’s sponsors showcasing the latest and greatest the cycling world has to offer.
