Routes and Rider Classifications

Which route is right for me, how much should I train, and do I have to ride that route once I commit?

We encourage you to register for a route that you are physically comfortable riding. Each rider should know and understand his/her own capabilities. For the longer distances, including the 62 miler, the Century (100 miler) we strongly encourage you to train for such a distance. The course limit is 8 1/2 hours so you must be able to complete your distance of choice crossing the finish line by 4:00 pm or rolling SAGS will pick you up from the course.

Listed below are the average speeds at which participants must ride in order to complete the specific routes within the time deadline of 4:00 p.m., assuming 10 minutes per SAG stop:

45 mile (4 SAG stops) - average speed 6.1 mph
62 mile (5 SAG stops) - average speed 8.5 mph
100 mile (8 SAG stops) - average speed 14.7 mph
