Sometimes it’s not the finish line that matters. It’s the struggle that went before.  – author unknown

The course will NOT be signed. Signs often fall down, get stolen or, worse yet, reversed. You are required to use turn-by-turn GPS/TCX instructions on a navigation device or cue sheets. At a minimum, you MUST have printed cue sheets with you throughout the race. We HIGHLY recommend you set up both so you always have a back-up. If all else fails, find someone to ride with all the way in.

The first course below is going through permit approval and is likely to be approved but may be tweaked in routing and distance. The second course below may not be approved by the U.S. Forest Service (unfortunately county roads which do not need approval cannot be linked without Forest Service roads).
