Riders will roll out on their own from the Caspar Community Center to the start off of Hwy 20. Here we’ll gather, top off our water or Skratch hydration and begin our adventure. The route meanders around the Hare Creek watershed and then links up with Road 408 near Hwy. 20. From here riders roll on Rd. 408 and then descend to Caspar Creek. The route continues up Sweet Pea back to Rd 408 and then continues to Little Lake Rd. At this point you have a bit of pavé from mile 30-42 and then head back on dirt. The race finishes just before Simpson Rd. in Fort Bragg. At just under 60 miles and 6000 ft of climbing this route is certain to challenge and thrill every rider. Promise
