Route

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

Navigation
You are required to use our custom cue sheets which we will provide you (PDF); turn-by-turn GPX/TCX instructions on a GPS bike computer are highly recommended. The course will ONLY be signed at two-tracks, snowmobile trails, etc. where some added clarity might be needed. Signs may fall down, get stolen or be reversed out of spite so it’s best to trust GPS files and cue sheets.

210 cue sheets (updated 5/14/19, PDF, 2 pgs.). Final as best as we know it. Includes 2019 re-routes. Custom made – street names will match street signs. Distances to turn calculated with Garmin. Other bike computers should be similar. Do NOT use embedded cue sheets in Ride with GPS or Strava.
