We had great feedback from the 2021 route so we decided to keep Saturdays routes almost identical for 2022. We swapped around one section in the 70 and 100 mile routes that cuts out about 6 miles of paved road and switched to gravel. It also allowed for easier access to another rest stop.

The NEW Sunday Routes
Sunday will likely be something you have NEVER done before! We listened to feedback from 2021 and people wanted more gravel less road of course. So we scoured the entire county trying to find a solution, and came back to an idea that we borrowed from the UCI Tour of Labitibi. We will literally transport everyone and their bikes 11 miles out of town for a start at a different location. Sounds crazy, but its really not.
How will it work? Riders will park and meet at the start at the Shelton in Old Town Palestine (start/finish location) where buses will be waiting. All riders will load up on the bus at 6:15-6:30am, and bikes will be loaded in an equipment trailer. The bus drives 15 minutes out to the start in Jarvis. We prep up and start from there and it almost immediately goes into the gravel. ALL routes finish back at the Shelton in Palestine.
