1. Can I ride a mountain bike?
Yes! Both mountain bikes and gravel bikes are suitable for all distances.
2. What terrain should I expect?
On the 30 mile route, expect pavement and gravel roads. Either gravel or mountain bike is recommended for this route. On the 95 mile route, you will encounter pavement, gravel roads. A gravel or mountain bike is recommended.
3. What's the smallest recommended tire size?
We recommend at least a 40c for the long course. You can ride a smaller tire size on the shorter courses.
4. What if it rains?
Bring a rain jacket! We will not cancel the event unless lightning is a major issue. Your safety is our biggest concern.
5. How many aid stations will there be?
There will no longer be aid stations or course markings. This is a free group ride, and you are responsible to know the course and take care of yourself. If you are riding the 95 mile course, there is a store at Groudhog Reservoir that may be open and will have snacks and drinks. Please be prepared to bring cash.
