With three routes to choose from, you and your friends will find one that offers the distance and challenge appropriate for your experience and skill, no matter your age. All routes feature full rider support including rest stops with snacks and drinks.

Riding will spark your appetite for camaraderie and food—and BikeSpark delivers! Enjoy your ride,  then join other riders, volunteers and bicycling proponents in the BikeSpark Hub to relax and celebrate with a post-ride lunch featuring Fresh Fork Market and beverage choices from Sibling Revelry Brewing. Lunch is included for 65 and 30 mile riders, and can be purchased during registration for 12 mile riders at an additional fee.
