Heck of the North
Heck of the North
100 MILE AND 50 MILE GRAVEL CYCLING CLASSICS 

The Heck of the North is born from the premise that you the rider are ultimately responsible for getting to the finish. Limited support. No sag wagons. No signs guiding you home. Just your ability to spin miles of forested gravel roads. Just your ability to navigate by cue card. Just your strength to see it through to the end. And the opportunity to ride with some pretty amazing people!

Author Richard Broderick
Author Richard Broderick

Drury Lane Books | Grand Marais MN

A subtle centrifugal force drives this collection. By turns witty, solemn or capricious, the book moves outward from private, often lyrical poems about childhood and memory on into the realm of the “real world’s” self-serving myths, fears, and institutionalized inequities, and from there into work that celebrates the joys of love and the beauty and mystery of the natural world, and then still further outward into poems that consider the very nature of reality, what it means to be human, and where to find glimpses of the sacred in the midst of the profane and the disenchanted. Come meet Richard and discuss his poetry with him and others.
