10-Mile Fun Ride: This course is a family-friendly country route with several small, low grade hills in addition to its beautiful scenic views. Most importantly, it's safe for everyone including families and meant to provide a short and easy course!

22-Mile Fitness Test: The first half of this great route is scenic with horse farm views, quiet neighborhoods in addition to one challenging hill. As you get closer to the half mile marker of this route, while still scenic, there are also several moderately challenging but short to medium length hills as well. Please plan your preparation well, and you will be exhilarated once youve completed it!

32-Mile Challenge: The 32-mile route is not only scenic and quiet with lovely country views of horse farms and rural settings but as beautiful as the views are, its also hillier so please plan your training accordingly. This course starts out at a moderate skill-level and increasingly gets more challenging with the rolling hills and steep climbs as the miles pass. Youll love it!

63-Mile Elite Ride: If you are an elite cyclist or more serious about your training, the challenging 63-mile ride is for you! Its still got the scenic views of beautiful Howard County like the other routes do but its more challenging with a steady mix of hills and flats. The nice rural views help with the multiple challenging and well dispersed hills you encounter throughout. With adequate preparation, you will be King of the Hill and our smiley face Last Push surprise is sure to help you up the last hill to the finish line
