45-Mile Route: The 45-mile route shares the same amazing roads and climbs as the long route for the first 33 miles. Your heart will be pumping with the first climb over Rush Branch. The challenge continues with back to back climbs on Mountaindale Road and Georges Gap. You’ll enjoy the amazing scenery as you climb towards Zionville on quiet back roads. And when the long route turns right towards Snake Mountain, the short route turns left. It’s all down hill towards the final climb over Mast Gap then on to the finish line.
45 Mile – Ride with GPS
All routes are subject to change. BSG Events, Inc. and the BSG Ride Director reserve the right to change or modify the routes offered at anytime prior to or during the ride for safety purposes.
All routes start and finish at the Valle Crucis Elementary School. Chip timing is provided for non-competitive, personal timing purposes only.
Official cue sheets will be available at packet pick up.
Cue sheets printed from Map My Ride or Ride with GPS may not be accurate and are not endorsed by BSG. We provide map links from both Map My Ride and Ride with GPS for your convenience. Mapping programs like these correct uploaded data differently so discrepancies in certain ride parameters may occur when comparing ride data across dissimilar platforms.
All routes are clearly marked before, at and after each turn. Cue sheets are available at packet pickups. Busy intersections may be controlled by local law enforcement officers and first responders.
Aid Stations / Rest Stops
Both routes are fully supported with Aid Stations, SAG support and limited mechanical support. Aid stations will provide water, sports drink, fruit and snacks. Facilities are available at each Aid Station.
SAG (Support and Gear) support is provided for both routes. SAG support does not provide mechanical assistance but will move riders forward to Aid Stations where mechanical support is available. SAG support will only move riders forward on the route and may make several stops before returning any riders to the finish area. All riders should have a bicycle in good working order and carry a spare tube with the correct stem length for the wheels being used.
