This year it will be a Fitz to Barn course meaning that riders will depart from Fitzgerald's Bicycles and finish at Red Barn Bicycles. The course will follow the new route developed in 2013 but never ridden South to North. There will be some slight variations to contend with the private land issues around Jackson, MT. More to come on that...
We do have a .gpx file available from 2013 and please email scott<at>FitzgeraldsBicycles.com to get a copy of it.
Disclaimer: No GPS file of ANY EVENT is perfect. We fully expect each rider to be capable of navigating the route WITHOUT the assistance of GPS. Maps, compasses, and a good sense of personal responsibility are stressed in this event. We provide a GPS file to aid in preparation only and take no responsibility for any inaccuracies in the file. If you expect to show up and navigate the ride with only your GPS, you will be ill prepared! 'Nough said?
This ride is a highlight of the Summer for all who have ridden it. We hope you can join us in 2014!
