This has been described as the hardest and most fun bike ride by numerous people that have ridden the first two editions. It starts and ends in the Maple City (Honesdale) and covers some of Wayne County’s most scenic and challenging dirt roads.
The route will be predominantly dirt with a few paved sections to connect the dirt roads. Expect to see lots of farms, animals, waterfalls, climbs, and rocks. There will be designated rest stops along the routes and support vehicles available on the course. The course will be marked, but it is recommended to have the route programmed into your GPS if you have one.
Registration is required and will open on March 1 on BikeReg.com. It is not a race, but can be competitively fun. We will have prizes/medals/shirts/swag available.

There are three distances to choose from: 30 miles, 62 miles and 100 miles. All the routes are challenging and predominantly dirt.
