On-site registration will be from 7:00am to 8:30 am.  The shuttles will begin leaving as busses and trailers fill up starting as early as 7:30AM.  Make sure your bike is loaded on trailer going to the right location.  Trailers are numbered to assist you in finding your bikes at the start.  Snake Creek Gap is the start for 17Miler and Dry Creek is the start of 34Miler.


A Schedule of events for this Saturday is as follows:

6:30AM     Volunteers Meet and Setup The Snake Pit (the registration, souvenir, parking, etc. area)

The rider can select either the 17 mile event, or if you are tough enough you can choose to do the 34 mile Event . These events are truly epics, the 34-mile distance is quite an epic to complete. Over 90% of it is on single-track trails. These will not be your normal 17 or 34-mile epic rides. They both will require extreme physical condition, so please use good judgment if you decide to ride!
