The Two Routes

These routes have been designed for fun and adventure as well as personal challenge. These routes have some long sustained climbs with a few steeper climbs depending upon your selected route. Please train properly. None of these routes are recommended for beginners.

Printed maps will be available at registration and all route stops. See link below for separate route maps, elevation profiles, cue sheets, and links to download routes to your GPS device.

Note: If you download the route files to a Garmin or other GPS device, some of the rest and water stops will not show up because the routes entering and exiting the stops are not included. Printed cue sheets that include the routes entering and exiting the stops will be available to all riders, and the corners near the stops on the routes will be marked.
