Q: What is the weather like in July?
A: You can expect mornings to be in the 50’s and daytime temps to be in the 70’s and low 80’s. This may be the best place in the west to ride in summertime.
Q: How many rest stops are on the course?
A: There are six stops for the 150 mile riders and five for the 100 mile riders, and one stop for the 50 mile riders.
Q: Will there be sag vehicles on the course?
A: Yes, but it’s still a good idea to be prepared for any sort of breakdown.
Q: Is lunch provided?
A: Yes, in addition to the fully stocked rest stops, you’ll enjoy lunch at the finish line.
Q: Is the course relatively flat?
A: The 50 mile route has a total gain of 2,066 ft. It has one category 2 climb at the beginning of the event (The climb rating system goes from 1 to 5 with 5 being the easiest). You’ll climb 1205 ft. in the first 13 miles—an average grade of only 1.7%. After that the course flattens out and you’ll only gain 861 ft. in the final 37 miles.
A: The 109 mile route has a total gain of 3780 ft. You’ll find the same category 2 climb at the beginning of the ride (1205 ft. in the first 13 miles). Then you have a 60 mile gentle downgrade where you drop 1787 ft. That’s followed by a gentle upgrade where you’ll climb 620 ft. over the next 36 miles.
A: The 150 mile route has a total gain of 3780 ft. It’s identical to the 109 mile route until you shift off on your extra 41 mile leg. Then it climbs ______ ft. in the next 20 miles and turns around for a downhill to the finish.
