Ride with the Pros in a challenging Gran Fondo in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina - Oct 27th

Swift Summit 200/100

Swift Summit 200/100

August 11 2018
Lebanon, Oregon, USA

Join those who are looking to dig deep for an event like no other: part brevet, part gran fondo, part self-supported endurance road race. Riders are provided a cue sheet, a marked course, and aid station/control points approximately 40 miles apart to restock. In between those support checks, riders can access convenience stores and other neutral amenities along the course as needed. The 200 mile route boasts a generous 8,200 feet of climbing and features four short sections of hard packed gravel roads (1-2 miles each), while the 100 mile route checks in just under 5,000 feet of climbing.  Both courses offer scenic views of the Cascades Mountain range, and run alongside the swift Santiam and Calapooia Rivers.

This timed event will begin and end at Conversion Brewing in historic downtown Lebanon, Oregon (833 S. Main Street). Participants will roll out in a mass start before being set loose to explore the rolling back-roads and steep vistas of the mid-Willamette Valley. 200 mile riders will begin at 5am, while the 100 mile riders will begin at 8am.

Riders can provide one drop bag, no larger than a gallon size zip-lock, that will be transported to a designated control point by event officials. (mile 46 for 100 mile route, mile 110 for 200 mile route). 200 mile riders will be able to access their drop bag three total times, while the 100 mile riders will be able to access theirs once. Check point and course cut-offs will be implemented  throughout the day in order to keep riders safe and accounted for. The Swift Summit 200 course will close at 10 pm (12 mph/avg required), and the Swift Summit 100 course will close at 5 pm (11 mph/avg required). Please refer to the control point information on the Ride with GPS course maps below for specific control cut-off times.

Riders are allowed, and encouraged, to help one another with mechanical or other support needs. There is no access for outside team support other than at the designated control points. Any rider who does not meet the checkpoint deadline, or those needing to pull themselves from the course, may do so at any checkpoint, and will be shuttled back to the start when the checkpoint officially closes. In the event that a rider cannot make it to an aid station before they drop, they may call the emergency number listed on their cue sheet to be picked up by the nearest aid station volunteer.
