A Two Day Showdown of fast-rolling XC trails and winding carriage roads. Eighty miles over two days with two entirely different courses showcasing what Stewart State Forest has to offer for Mountain Bikers and Gravel Riders alike. Show up for a single day of action or buckle up for both and compete for the King or Queen of the Dirty Double! All Post-Race Festivities (Live music, BBQ & camping) will be hosted at Bikeway Bicycles, 628 NY 17K, Montgomery NY 12549 - 1 mile from race finish!
The XC course consists of two 20 mile loops with fast flowy trails. There are a few small sections broken up with service road but the course is almost entirely single-track. There will be two aid stations offered on each loop, and enough beer at the after-party to keep you pedaling the whole 40 miles.
The Gravel course will be 3 loops with 80% of the course on fast open carriage roads but with enough single-track sprinkled in to keep the mountain bikers happy and in the pack. Ridge Rd. will be rockin' with spectators as the race will pass by numerous times.
RideWithGPS and Strava Maps Links will be available prior to the race.
