Q: What is the weather like in October?
A: The average high is in the low 80’s with a low in the lower 50’s. Mornings can be cool but it warms up fast. However, it is not uncommon for a day to reach well into the high 80’s or even stay in the 60’s so be sure to watch the weather.
Q: How many rest stops are on the course?
A: There are five stops for the 100 mile riders, four for the 75 mile riders and one for the 35 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, we will be providing a mini lunch at the third rest stop. There will also be a full lunch at the finish line.
Q: Is the course relatively flat?
A: The 35 mile route has a total elevation swing of 1083 ft. There are no rated climbs on the course (The climb rating system goes from 1 to 5 with 5 being the easiest), so it’s a relatively easy ride. The first 6 miles are mostly a gentle downhill. From mile 6 to 13 you’ll climb just over 300 vertical ft.—a very easy slope. Then it’s a downgrade almost all the way to the finish. This is a great beginner’s route.
A: The 75 mile route has a total elevation swing of 4530 ft. There 3 rated climbs on the course. Just after the 23rd mile you’ll come to a level 5 climb where you ascend 200 ft. in just over 2 miles. Then you have a brief reprieve of 2 miles before the next climb—a level 4—where you’ll climb 382 vertical ft. in 4 miles. After the level 4 you’ll have an easy 1.5 miles before you come to the toughest climb on the route, a level 2 where you’ll ascend over 1,600 vertical ft. in 12 miles. Once you’ve conquered that you’re in for a treat! It’s all downhill from there—you’ll descend over 2,000 ft. during the final 30+ miles of your ride.
A: The 100 mile route has a total elevation swing of 5981 ft. There are 4 rated climbs on the course. The first 33 miles are fairly easy. Then you come to a level 3 climb where you’ll ascend 600+ ft. over the next 6 miles. After that your route merges with the 75 milers and you’ll face the level 5, level 4, & level 2 climbs mentioned above. After that it’s the same long downgrade to your finish!
