Outdoor rides at 6:30 PM! Tue and Thu road rides. Wed mountain bike rides.
Scroll down a little to find links to the four route options.
You can choose from 38, 62 or 100 miles on pavement or 62 miles on gravel.
The paved routes are designed so that you have multiple bail out options to cut the ride short if you're wearing down fast. If you're having a great ride you can change your mind mid-ride and follow a longer route. No need to notify us.
The gravel route is 62 miles sort of out and back to Big Brutus. You get over 52 miles of fast gravel roads ranging from pancake flat at the start and finish thirds to roller coaster punchy hills near Big Brutus! Three miles of pavement at the start, two one mile sections in the middle and 5 miles at the end. Everything else is beautiful, dirty, low traffic gravel!
We've set up a number of Strava segments on the route with signs so you can have a little fun racing your friends and other riders during the ride! Segment start and finishes will be included on GPS cues and marked on the course.
