Choose your own adventure! Two routes will be available, a “100” km and a “50” km option. This is a tougher than usual gravel grind and we recommend you prep your equipment accordingly. Both routes include surfaces that are a mixture of smooth gravel, rough gravel, and harsh, overgrown, barely-ridden gravel that may require you to hike-a-bike through a section or two. You’ll also ride some of the finest paved roads in the region (about 20% of the total length on both routes) and enjoy short stints on some of the best flow trail singletrack this side of the Mississippi. The 100km route also features a water crossing where riders will be ferried across Pemadumcook Lake, and a cruise through downtown Millinocket.
Tires should be at least 42mm wide (1.65”); you’ll get through on narrower rubber but not without suffering more on the loose or rocky terrain and running a higher risk of flatting. Carry flat-tire repair items and know how to use them. The courses will be marked but we encourage you to have a GPS device or a smartphone with the RWGPS app (free).
Note: These routes go through privately owned lands, and will only be accessible during this event!
Please note: No paper maps will be available at the ride. We recommend downloading the routes to your smartphone or navigation device to keep you on track.
