FINISH LINE PARTY

You heard right.  From 6pm-2am, 200 mile riders will be welcomed home with killer tunes and delicious beer from Short's Brewing.  It will be a good time.  We promise.

 

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

  

Sunrise: 6:57am.  

Sunset: 6:30pm.

 

The course is mostly gravel and sandy two-track but there is some pavement. If you are a beast you will average 13-16mph. If you are an experienced, fit rider you will average around 12-13mph. All others should plan to average 9-11mph.

There are many turns on the route, so use the method you trust most to navigate. We use Wahoo Elemnts, which have great battery life and a good turn-by-turn guidance system.

 

 

 

TIMING

 

We've decide to go old skool and keep track of timing via a good ol' timer clock. We still encourage you to record your ride on Strava, but your official finish time will be based on the time you cross the finish line.

 

 

 

FEED ZONES

 

Please note: this information is subject to change

Water and food stations will be setup along the route at around mile 45 (where the routes first deviate) and mile 165, but you should still keep yourself stocked on nutrition and water just to be safe.

 

 

  

SAFETY

 

This is NOT a closed-course event, which means there can be cars and other vehicles on the route at any time. Riders are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and exercising extreme caution. You are expected to stop at all stop signs.

 

There will be no emergency medical staff on the course. You are responsible for tending to your own injuries. Basic first-aid supplies will be provided at watering stations along the course. 

 

If you can not complete the course, you are responsible for arranging your own rescue.
