Start Time Check will be at 7:30 and a group departure time promptly at 8:00. The check-in closes one minute before the start. If you did not preregister, please come early and pay with a check (or exact change in cash). Since the RBA or trail boss will also be riding with the group, he cannot wait for late comers (he will leave your brevet card on the windshield if you notify him in time). This event will be held rain or shine.

Introduction These two loop routes travel together for the first 54 miles before they split. They both start in Murray, a suburb SW of Salt Lake City. They travel north and then west along a bike path (just south of the airport), along the wide-shoulder Mountainville Hwy (or take the bike path). The 100K then heads back to the start. The 200K continues south to Eagle Mountain before returning via the Jordan River bike path and other side roads.

Start & Finish Location Smith’s, 665 W 5300 S, Murray, UT 84123. Take exit 300 off I-15 and head west on 5300 South (UT-173) for about a 1/2 mile. It is on the SE corner of 5300 S & 700 W.

Cue Sheet A detailed cue sheet and brevet card will be provided at check in. Do NOT rely on the online cue sheet as it may not be accurate. If you wish to preview the cue sheet, a PDF 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.

Motels Google it.

Registration If possible, please register 48 hours in advance so I have time to prepare the personalized brevet cards and cue sheets. The administration fee is $5.00.

Support This will be a self-supported brevet. The trail boss and/or RBA will be riding with the whole group as a participant. This means you will be getting your supply of fluids and extra food at convenience stores or cafes along the route. There is no SAG. In the event of any catastrophic problems, we recommend that you have a back-up plan (a local friend that you can call for assistance). If you do have a friend or spouse that can provide support, please let me know — such help is always welcome.

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 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 anticipate taking the full amount of time (12–13 hours) to finish, please bring proper night apparel & lights, otherwise you may be DQed. See the “Lighting” paragraph on this page.

Contact Richard Stum (Regional Brevet Administrator), office 435 – 462 – 2266, mobile 435 – 851 – 9558, or Jim Halay will be the trail boss on this event.

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 Saturday morning and decide not to ride, please let me know so I won’t worry about you at the start. I will not be checking e-mail on Saturday morning, so please call or text me.
