We’ll post a map and more specifics soon. For now, generally speaking, the route is a lollipop-shaped course starting in Springdale, UT at the Town Park on Lion Boulevard. From there you’ll ride out to Highway 9 and take that about 20 miles then turn right only UT-17. You’ll ride through Toquerville then hang a right on Old Highway 91 and pass through Leeds on your way to UT-318 and Quail Creek State Park. Then you’ll hang a left on Highway 9, and make your way to Sand Hollow Road where you’ll do ride a beautiful loop about Sand Hollow Reservoir and into Hurricane. Then you’ll take Highway 9 back to Springdale. It’s 77 miles for the main course.

For those who want to make it a full century, after checking in at the finish line and enjoying some refreshments, you’ll do the “bonus miles” into Zion National Park. You’ll ride a lovely bike path to Zion Canyon Road, and do the out-and-back to the Temple of Sinawava. You can refill your water bottles at the end of the road before heading back. We highly recommend the bonus miles. It’s a gentle climb into the park, and mostly downhill all the way back! If you don’t already have a National Parks Pass or a Zion Pass, you can buy one at the gate for $12. It’s good for a week.
