We’re excited for this year’s event and we know you are excited too! This year, we will be starting and finishing at the Utah Motorsports Campus in Erda (just a few short minutes west of Tooele). This venue offers up some exciting long-term opportunities with regard to cycling events we hope to implement over the next few years. In 2021, the event will be staged in the “Midway” location on campus.
- Century Ride (105 miles)
- Metric Century (62 miles)
- 30 mile ride
All rides will begin at 7am with Century in front, Metric next, then 30 milers. We’re planning a shotgun start, with social distancing parameters in place. (You'll start 10 at a time, 5 seconds apart).
Utah Motorsports Campus
512 Sheep Lane
The earlier you register, the better the price!
Your entry includes: sweet t-shirt (you’ll actually want to wear instead of cleaning your bike with it!), finisher medal, cycling socks, supported aid-stations, window sticker, sweet souvenir pint glass, a $50 hotel credit voucher from sleep discounts.com, feed stations every 15 miles, and finish-line food.
The century and metric century offer beautiful west desert scenery with flats, rollers and a couple good hills to keep you honest! Great hills to prep anyone for LOTOJA. The 105-mile century ride consists of two separate “lollypop” loops, while the metric century consists of one lollypop loop.
The 30-mile ride is a nice South/North out-and-back course along the old Mormon Road. These roads are typically low in traffic. Detailed maps can be found on the “route maps” page. There will a an aid station at the 15 mile mark.
The Century and Metric Century will have Feed Stations every 20 miles. The 30 mile ride will have a feed zone at the turn-around point. These feed stations will include, water, electrolyte drinks, energy bars, treats, PB & J sandwiches, etc. However, WE ARE LIMITED to the types of products we can provide due to the Covid19 pandemic. Everything will be pre-packaged and sitting on a table for you. Our volunteers will be there, but there will be no hand-to-hand interaction. (County and State Health Dept rules) We strongly encourage you to bring your own nutrition and carry with you as much as you can during your ride.
We will have support vehicles roaming along the route. However, covering 105 miles, it may take a while for our vehicles to get to you. We encourage you to bring a cell phone with you to contact our support staff should you need assistance. There will also be a sag-vehicle following the last group or person on the course.
Packet Pickup locations, dates, and times will be announced in July.
