To get everyone rolling at times that will reasonably have most finished and at the Flying Mouse Brewery between 3 and 5 the above staggered start times have been selected. Even if you’re not riding at 10am you can get cozy by the fire and cheer on the 50 mile riders as they start!

This event is the brainchild of endurance athlete Brian Lang and each route was expertly hand crafted by Kyle Inman and Jeff Cheng!
