Where: Start at Silent Custom Cyclery parking lot. The route starts at SCC, heads north and then west on Main up Cedar Mesa, over to Redlands Mesa, and through the town of Austin and up through the country roads back up to Cedaredge! Map available here (coming soon).
Description: This a tour of Cedaredge from the tops of Cedar and Redlands mesas before it sweeps down into the canyon into Austin, back up through canyons, and winding back to Cedaredge. This is a 40-mile road ride that you will feel in your legs for sure! There is a little over 2500 feet of elevation gain over the course, but plenty of gorgeous vistas to take in and some thrilling descents as well. The road is open to normal highway traffic, but there is little traffic on most of the route, except for a portion that goes between Payne Siding Road and Austin for a few miles, but there is a very wide and recently paved shoulder and that is the only highway riding on the course. Please observe normal traffic rules.
