Get your name on the email newsletter list. We only send out a few messages per year so just go ahead and do it. Participants are to meet at the corner of Dry Creek Road and Theisen Roads just north of Belgrade, MT. First one done gets first crack at the cold ones.
Remember this is a self-supported ride (aka no food and only minimal water available). It is on an un-marked course and there are no support vehicles to come save your rear at the end of the day. So come out and ride with us, but show up prepared! Download the route .gpx file for your phone or GPS and take a look at the cue sheet.
Did I mention that this is an unsupported ride? The only water is around mile 42. The only food or tools are what you bring with you. You'll probably want a bike computer to follow the route on the cue card because none of the turns are marked.
This is a great local or destination event, and for those traveling it can easily be connected with a trip to historic Yellowstone National Park just ninety miles to the South.
Started in 2012 by a humble cyclist looking to continue the tradition of the grassroots gravel races of his Midwest roots this [almost] all-gravel route in rural SW Montana is sure to please everyone from beginner to diehard.
