1st Climb/Descent
Starting in the town of Cumberland the route heads quickly into the forest and onto a sustained gravel climb that will separate the riders (approx. 10km) with the last 1.5km on uphill singletrack. The Highlight reel opens up once you begin the descent here you will encounter some of Cumberland’s finest singletrack as you head back towards the town: Furtherburger, Blockhead, Bear Buns - a riders trail, across Sykes bridge up to the Feature Trail - VANILLA, then That Dam trail followed by Missing Link and Mama Bear. Once you pass through the base camp you will begin your second lobe located to the east of town.
2nd Climb/Descent
Starting through the Village park (base camp) the second sustained climb begins on road then quickly dips into the forest and begins to gain vertical on singletrack. The Cottonwood Climb transitions into some sweet singletrack on the 50:1 trail, to Cabbage Patch before tackling a bit more gravel road. Use the road to stretch, eat and hydrate as the rest of the day will be mostly on singletrack: Leave the road just after passing Short Line and enter onto Blue Collar to the 3 Crafty Butchers and the home run: the iconic Black Hole and Space Nugget and sprint for the finish at the Cumberland Village Park – Day 1 in the bag.

I lost my Garmin 520 on the 50:1 trail. It was the final right hand turn before heading into Cabbage Patch. There was some congestion that hung up a group and I fell left onto a log laying at the turn. I didn't notice it missing until I got out of Cabbage Patch onto the fire road. If anyone finds it please contact Kevin - (403) 585-7740.
