The Ramble is 30ish miles, dirt roads, plenty of climbing, and some sketchy class 4 roads. Doable on a bike with decently low gearing and 40+mm tires. Mid ride stop somewhere scenic for beers and sandwiches. BYOB and Sandwich! Super mellow pace guided ride with random stops to eat wild apples and talk about local history, or DIY pace with wayfinding.
The Scramble is 45+ miles, way harder terrain, with single track, class 4 roads, hikeabikes, roads that look like stream beds, and worse. Exceedingly hard 45 mile ride! Many riders last year DNF’d this ride. Do not underestimate this ride based on it’s mileage. Wayfinding, this is not a marked route. Pre-download the GPX route. We HIGHLY recommend Gaia Premium for this. Don’t try to do it day of, there is no city slicker super fast cell connection here and we have NO wifi.
The Race is 80+ miles, with well over 12,000 feet of climbing. Probably closer to 13,000. Singletrack, horrible roads, Brevet style check points, hike a bikes, river crossings and other sketch delights. Hardest ride you’ll ever do, we bet. Starts early. Totally self supported old school race. Winner gets a pie and some donuts. Pre-download the GPX route. We HIGHLY recommend Gaia premium for this. Don’t try to do it day of, there is no city slicker super fast cell connection here and we have NO wifi.
