Route

EMBRACE the Adventure.

Expect 6-9 mile laps. We'll wait until the date gets closer to finalize the route.
Last year Mother Nature wrecked havoc in the area with washed out roads and closed bridges.

We know folks are chomping at the bit to get out and race and we don't plan to postpone or cancel the race, so be prepared for an adventure! If any of this scares you then stay home.

KNOW THE COURSE
Details coming soon.

BE SAFE
The course is NOT closed.
Watch out for vehicles, dogs, ruts, soft spots and holes.
Be careful riding behind someone or in a pack - this will be DANGEROUS on this course!
Be careful passing - the road conditions can change quickly
Watch the corners - they are very soft
Easy on the downhills.
Ride Ride - move to the right when riding up hills
Be Nice - call out holes, ruts, etc to your fellow racers

Bike Choice
It's up to you.You know your skill-set
We don't recommend a road bike with skinnies.
35mm tires and more are what we recommend
Fat-Bike friendly

That all said - Have Fun!
