2013 Route

The 2013 Fitz:Barn/Barn:Fitz Route
Chad and Fitzy have been putting the final details together for this year's route and it looks awesome!  Gone are the long hot sections of Sand Dunes by St Anthony and in their place a classic section of the Tour Divide Route through Lima and Red Rock Pass.  Look for a full GPS track this week so you can plan your ride accordingly.  So far our numbers are coming in at 430 miles.  Perfect!  How many days will it take you?

2013 Start Date is August 9th

Mark your calendars for the start date for the 2nd Fitz-Barn Ride.  This year we are starting from Red Barn Bicycles in Hamilton, MT and will ride to Fitzgerald's Bicycles in Victor, ID.    Ride begins on August 9th!

Now we just need to decide what we are calling this year's ride.  What do you all think?

  • Barn-Fitz
  • Red- Gerald
  • Or do you have a great name for the 2013 edition?  Let's hear it.

We are working on some changes to this year's route, so it will not be an exact reverse route of last year.   Stay tuned for new route information & we can't wait to ride with you again!
