Introduction This is similar to our popular Willard Bay 200K, but starts further south. The biggest difference is that is it heads out to Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake.
Start & Finish Location Parking lot at Stars/Spectrum Academy, 35 North Redwood Road, North Salt Lake, just north of the Maverik, which is at 800 W Center St, North Salt Lake, UT 84054. Take exit 27 off I-215 and head north. Elev. 4,218 ft.
Road Construction This route is heavily affected by road construction in 2023, please use your best judgement in making detours to avoid road construction.
Antelope Island Entrance Fee Antelope Island requires a $3 entrance fee for bicycles.
Lighting Not required for this brevet, but we recommend “daylight running” lights at all times. Time limit for this route is 13:30 hours, so if you anticipate finishing after dark, please adhere to RUSA lighting guidelines
Registration If possible, please register three days in advance so we have time to prepare the personalized brevet cards and cue sheets, but we always welcome walk-ins too!
Cue Sheet A detailed cue sheet and brevet card will be provided at check in. If you wish to preview the cue sheet, a PDF or OpenOffice (similar to Excel) version can be e-mailed to you upon request, or one will be sent out to everyone on the Google E-Mail Group, about a week before the event date.
Support This will be a self-supported brevet. That means you will be getting your supply of fluids and extra food at convenience stores or cafes along the route. The RBA or trail boss will be riding with the group as a participant. Self-sufficiency is a must (bringing extra parts including a spare tire is recommended). There is no SAG, so you will be well advised to have a person to call in case you DNF and cannot ride home.
If you have to abandon the brevet, please call or text me, so I don’t wait for you at the finish.
Sanctioning See our “What is a Brevet?” page for more information on sanctioning.
Reminders This is primarily a self-supported event, so bring cash for stops at various convenience stores. Also have a pen in your bag in case the route requires answering an “Information Checkpoint.”

If You Are Late Please call me so I can arrange to leave you a cue sheet and brevet card. You can start up to an hour after the official start time, but subsequent checkpoint cut-off times will remain the same, as if you had started with everyone else. If you know in advance, or wake up Friday morning and decide not to ride, please let me know so I won’t worry about you at the start.
If You Cannot Make It If you pre-registered, but cannot make it, if it is the day before or day of, please text me, as I may not be checking e-mailing while on the road.
