About the Event
When: July 24, 9 am
Where: Start at Silent Custom Cyclery Parking Lot, the course heads north along county roads until Ute Trail, heading east until Surface Creek Road, then finish at the intersection of Main and Cedar Mesa Road (so the riders have a ramp to ride up and slow down).

Description: This is a true test of strength and endurance. Simple loop around Surface Creek Road to Ute Trail, then back via 2375 Rd, finishing on Main Street.
