Have you ever wanted to hop on your bike in the morning and ride all day on some of the best and most beautiful trails in North America? What if we upped the ante and added in food stations with delicious, local food and beverages, pre-ride coffee and pastries, apres-ride beverages and an amazing meal, as well as ample maple fuel? Well this is the event for you! We are so excited to offer the 3rd annual KT 50/100K. The past two years, hearty groups of riders departed on a 62 mile trail ride (or 50k alternative) which was 99% single-track, finishing at the iconic Heavens Bench for delicious and well earned food and post ride libations. This year we have added a 25K (15 mile) option for those who want to have a stepping block to the 100K/50K or who just want to spend the day on some of the best trails in the world. This is a guided ride and is not a competition; this is a good times trails ride and a great excuse to go out and enjoy most of the single-track that Kingdom Trails has to offer!
NEW FOR 2019***GUIDED AND SELF-GUIDED OPTION! In years prior, this has been a guided ride, but moving forward we want to empower the soloist more. This will give riders an additional challenge of following the route or if anyone wants to race this route, they can do that as well. A complete GPS file will be sent to those wanting to complete the self-guided portion.
