Bike Course

The bike course starts off from the soccer fields at Panther Creek State Park and heads through the grass sports fields before crossing the road and tackling the winding trails inside the main park. The single track trails are flowing at times, but you will earn trail position with a few short climbs. There is nothing flat about this course, however, it can be ridden fast. Riders continue along Panther Creek and return to the sports fields before completing their lap at the group camp.

Aid Stations

There will be one aid station which will be located at Base Camp. It will be stocked with water, electrolyte drink, gels, bars, fruit, snacks, and basic first aid supplies. Bikers are encouraged to bring their own race nutrition as well.
