Go for big miles and big elevation on this challenging course (June 29th, 2019)
The Edge is a challenging ride with up to 120 miles and 12,000' of climbing. And when we say climbing, we're not talking about an easy-weekend-kind-of-climbing. The route master is going to take you to the edge and whip up a route that includes some of the nastiest hill climbs on the Eastside.
For 2019 we have done a major overall haul to the ride with six brand new routes that range in sizes: 50, 60, 75, 100, 110 and 120 miles. The Edge is for experienced riders who are comfortable following cue sheets and riding independently. You can ride on your own or find riders in every pace category from 14 to 25+ mph pacing.
NOTE: We will not be providing Cue Sheets at the start of the ride. Cue Sheets will only be available via the Ramrod Training Series Facebook group. If you desire a paper cue sheet on the ride you must bring your own copy.
The Edge's mid-summer date makes it an excellent ride to keep in shape and prep for the big rides like RAMROD, the High Pass Challenge and the Passport2Pain.
Weather - The decision to ride or cancel will be made from the starting location. If the ride is officially canceled, the route will still be available for those hearty souls that wish to train in any condition.
The routes will be available on RidewithGPS.com. Search for "2019 EDGE" to find routes.
We'll see you out on The Edge!
