Take a sandwich.

You are turning 50, go ride 50 Miles. Route starts at the bottom of Freemason Trail (park somewhere nearby - WPT perhaps). Trail ends at Kimball Jct, oddly close to Red Rock Brewing so you can grab a burger and pitcher of beer.

Note: The only place the course crosses itself is after you've ridden down Spincycle and you are coming back up, you've got to get on Deer Crest (climbing toward Mid Mtn Ext - you are headed to Silver Lake Lodge).
