Redesigned Routes

We started from scratch on 2021 based on feedback from the participants of previous editions and are happy to announce:

  • No More Huge Sand Pits
  • More Gravel/Less Pavement
  • Creek Crossing
  • More Rest Stop Access
  • Some Singletrack (Sunday)

 

Saturday Routes

Redesigned routes that eliminate the crazy sand pits and adds in more gravel sections. The routes head east and southward from Palestine to hit some of the best gravel roads in the area. Its pretty hilly so dont let the lack of mountains fool you!

Sunday Routes

For Sunday routes take a new twist. From Palestine, routes head into Dogwood Park for some short single track before hitting the roads eastward. Routes cross over some sections from Saturday before heading through some scenic farm areas to Rusk. The 105 and 70 get to have a fun creek crossing before heading back west towards Palestine.
