Introduction The 100K and 200K shared the same route for 54 miles before the 100K turns around. Both the 200 and 300K share a common route until mile 22 before the split up. There is a lot of climbing on the 300k, so bring low gears and strong legs. This route combines two classic rides in the Salt Lake area: Emigration Canyon and Antelope Island. Antelope Island requires a $3 entrance fee for bicycles.

Start & Finish Location Medical office parking lot just north of the Maverik, 800 W Center St (near Redwood Rd), North Salt Lake, UT 84054. Take exit 27 off I-215 and head north. Elev. 4,218 ft.

Lighting May 7 sunrise: 6:18, sunset 8:30. The 300K requires lighting. The 200K does note require lighting. Lighting requirements includes: 1) a front light; 2) a rear red tail light; 3) a reflective vest or sash and 4) reflective ankle bands. Be advised to bring back-ups for each light too. There will be an inspection at the start line to insure you have everything (if you arrive at the finish after dark without appropriate lighting and clothing you may be DQed— see our rules page for more info on this topic).

Registration If possible, please register three days in advance so we have time to prepare the personalized brevet cards and cue sheets.

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.
The 200K and 300K routes have a lot of turns, consequently, we recommend that you use a GPS that will give you turn-by-turn guidance (in addition to the printed cue sheet).

WARNING! The 300K version travels into the two very scenic valleys of Morgan and Huntsville, however, the route out of them is traveling on the infamous North Ogden Divide Pass. At mile 85 our route starts up the pass which has a rather steep grade (9 or 10%) and has a sign posted indicating that this road is not recommended for cyclists. That is because of no shoulder, however the direction of travel does put you on the inside facing the mountain which is slightly safer on both the ascent and descent. We recommend that you use a mirror and take the lane, controlling when motorists pass or not. As this is a steep climb, there is no shame in walking.

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. I 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.
