 We offer 2 different race distances so you are placed according to which distance you choose! Now offering a fun ride 22 mile course!

Although this is a race you must possess orienting skills and come into it with a POSITIVE attitude. If a course marker is down etc. it is up to you to navigate properly. The best bet is to know the course by PRE RIDING it or by taking along a map and using our cheat sheet. As much as we try to prepare it is difficult to mark over 70 miles of trail and not have anyone go off course. If you just want to put your head down and go for it then we would suggest you race a closed course. If you detest any pavement riding then this race is not for you.

Based out of Frank Lane Park in Julian, which is right in town, so you have access to everything without driving.



bulletIf you have not done at least 35 miles off road with a fair amount of climbing then this ride is not for you.

There will be a riders meeting at 7:45 A.M. before the start. All riders MUST be checked in by no later than 7:15 A.M. Race starts at 8:00 A.M.


We are going to do a controlled start to Pine Hills Road.


Wherever possible the course will be marked with arrows. Although we do the best to mark the course thing happens to signs and arrows like cows, kids, weather conditions etc! You will also be provided with maps and route sheets. An odometer on your bike is a good idea! It is your responsibility to know the course by pre riding it. If you don't pre ride the course then you are at a disadvantage right off the bat.


You must check in at the start finish area at the end of each loop which is at Frank Lane park which is 2 blocks north east of the 4 way stop in Julian.


You should carry plenty of fluids and drinks on all the loops.There will be three rest stops on the first loop. The main rest stop is in Julian at the start finish area and you can also restock there with food and drinks. There is one rest stop on the second loop.


The course is not closed so expect vehicle traffic. Stay on your side of the road or trail. You must yield to hikers and horses whenever you meet them.


PLEASE check out before you go home so we don't spend all night looking for you! Better yet buddy up with someone and look out for each other.


Bring a bike in excellent running condition with all the tools and repair stuff you need. Also bring layers of clothes.


Cell phone reception is spotty but it is a good idea to bring one.


If you crash and get hurt it takes a while to get help to you. Up here they often use life flight which is very expensive and you are responsible for the costs! Remember risking it on the down hills will not get you first place! Watch your speed on the down hills. If you want to go fast do it on the up hills!


We will sweep the course with bikes and motorcycles.


Awards will be handed out as the winners in the different classes arrive at the finish.. All riders must be off the course by 6:00 P.M.
