The Edge

Go for big miles and big elevation on this challenging course (July 8, 2017)

The Edge

The Edge is a challenging ride with up to 100 miles and 10,000' 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.

The course comes in four different sizes: 42, 50, 75 and 100 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.

The Edge's mid-July 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, cue sheets will still be available for those who wish to ride in any conditions.

The routes will be available on RidewithGPS.com. Search for "EDGE" to find routes. Note: The routes will be posted one week before the ride.

We'll see you out on The Edge!
