When: April 13, 2013
Start: 7:00 AM, Velorution Cycles: 1077 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301
Do NOT park at the start location. Please ride over to the Start.
Finish: Whenever you make it back in town. Velorution Cycles: 1077 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301. A clipboard will be at Velorution for you to sign out.
Post-Ride Party: Carver Brewing located across the street from Velorution. Carver will donate a free beer to all finishers and is holding space for us on their patio!
If you plan to drive to this ride, park cars near the Horse Gulch trailhead – you will pass through Horse Gulch Trailhead after ~70-miles for the 160, and ~50-miles for the 115, so use this area as halfway staging.
Eco-Time adjustment for locals: For those who will bike to the start – you may stop by your house between the loops with a 15-minute deduction on your finish time. We would rather no one drive to this event. :-)
What: Early season riding on dirt roads, paved road – no singletrack. Chose either the 160-miles, with 10,328-ft of elevation gain – or – 115-miles, with 8861-ft of elevation gain. Cross bike, or mountain bike – your choice. Magnesium-Chloride makes for fast dirt surfaces… the route purposely includes some very rough sections to keep the road bikes out of this. Sorry, but while there are great mag-chloride routes that a road bike can handle quite well, this is part of a mountain bike series. Specifically the rough areas are CR 117, CR 136, CR 237/Horse Gulch Road – and you will pass through here twice.
