We hope everyone is getting in a few early season rides with this strange spring we have been having. We were able to get out on a portion of the course this past week and have a look at a possible option to reverse the 100 mile route.
Some of our riders in 2013 and 2014 asked us to consider reversing the 100 mile route to go up over Valley View (SR 30) earlier in the day, before the traffic picks up. We like the idea because it is a great way to get the riders off the busiest stretch of road in the event early. It still places the Malad, Idaho stop at about the 50 mile mark, but it places the hill after rather than before the rest station.
We are currently discussing this route change with UDOT and IDOT and hope to have a decision soon. Please feel free to leave YOUR comments below if you have an opinion one way or the other, we love hearing from our riders.
In the meantime, we hope you get out on your bikes this spring for lots of miles.
