The course will take riders through a variety of gravel and minimum maintenance roads. The ride is 90% gravel roads. You'll love the change in terrain and scenery. Riders may choose the 100 mile or 50 mile course. The 100 and 50 mile ride start and finish at Brophy Park.


Course Details

Cue Cards for 100 mile course

Map of 100 mile course

Cue Cards for 50 mile course

Map of 50 mile course (When you open the map you have to sign into google docs and then the course will show up. It should prompt you on the right upper corner of you screen. The maps are meant to be a help but the cue cards should be the best version of the ride.)

  • 50 mile and 100 races begin at 7:00 am from Brophy County Park

  • There will be an oasis offered by Jake's Bikes on the course available to both races.​

​​

  • There is a C Store on the 100 mile course just past cue 60. You will be able to see the station from the turn at Sunset Avenue. You will want to NOT turn and ride ahead to the C Store. Riders from the C Store can take a right onto South Otter and then a quick right on West Lake St. This turns into Parker's Road. Please note by going to the C Store it will impact your mileage slightly for those who live and die by their mileage for navigation! 

Brophy Park

The day of the Hun-Dirt riders will be able to park at the park. Bathrooms will be provided. After the ride there will be good eats for the riders, as well as access to the lake if you want to wash off the grit.
