Course Notes, GPX file, and Cue Sheet





The course will be marked the day before with color-coded turns.  All Starboard turns will have green signs and all Port turns will have red signs Think like a pirate as you navigate the gravel seas of Ohio.  There will also be arrows painted on the ground before turns. 


This year we have found a new home in Glenmont. As usual, the course will be a mix of previously used roads and new roads.  The ever-popular hike-a-bike from 2017 will be back on the course this year.  If you liked the abandoned bridge from that year, well  we have a treat in store for you.  
Gravel, mud, ghost towns, rock quarries, hills, Bigfoot, this years course has something for everyone.  Did I mention the hills? Good. Just in case we forgot, we added a few more.  For the numbers geeks, here is some data from this years course. There will be 10 sections that are not gravel for a total of 7.8 miles. To make up for all the pavement there will only be 6.1 flat miles.
