This is a big loop around Lake Pleasant – almost 60 miles. It will include some trail, some dirt roads and some other stuff. You may have to get slightly creative with routing on the north end of the lake – depending on lake levels. Same with riding along the Agua Fria. Could be “interesting” if the river is high.

New starting location this year. We’ll be hosted by the #1 Trail Angel of the Tour Divide (Kirsten of the famed Brush and Mountain Lodge) now has a home in Anthem, AZ and is letting us stage the ride from her casa.
Carpooling is highly encouraged. Park either at the address posted or
along the shoulder of W Desert Hills Dr.
Please bring a beverage & snacks to share for post-ride.
Let’s show Kirsten how we roll here in AZ!!
Water is available at about 18 and 20 miles in – on the west side of Lake Pleasant. After that you can probably filter from the lake or the Agua Fria (unless it is dry).
As always, it is HIGHLY recommended that you bring, and know how to use, a GPS for this race. There will be no maps or cue sheets.
Note about the course – On the north side this route goes through a Bald Eagle habitat. Access is prohibited December 15-June 15. Please don’t do the route during that time.
