Get dropped off at the end of the pavement on Hunter Creek Road no later than 9:30am. There is no parking available. Great option for families dropping off a rider and heading back for the fun afterwards.

Finishing: Shuttles/transport will leave from the end of the ride when they are filled up.

Details:

This 26 mile ride starts at the beginning of the gravel on Hunter Creek Road. Expect a good climb for roughly 13 miles before the descent. Time frame for this ride is at least 3 hours up to possibly 6 hours. You can get dropped off for the ride, but parking is not available. Limited shuttles are available for those that pre-register. Helmets and properly functioning bicycles are required.

It is also recommended that you bring your own tools, tire repair, snacks, and ample water. There is no support, you will need to be prepared. Best types of bikes for this ride would be hardtail mountain bikes, full suspension mountain bikes, or even “gravel grinders”. Feel free to message us on Facebook if you have any questions.

KING or QUEEN OF THE HILL

First to the top receives a garden gnome, a sweet $100 cash prize and a beer! So make sure to bring your climbing legs. [Don’t worry you won’t have to carry the gnome back down with you 😉 ]


13 Mile Downhill Ride

Ride will begin at 10:30am as a shuttle only, wheels rolling at roughly at 11:15am.

Getting there:

This ride is shuttle only due to bike traffic from the 26 miler on the gravel roadways.  We want to keep dust and traffic down to a minimum for those on bikes. Please be ready to load your bikes before 10:30am at Buffington Park. Shuttle leaves at 10:30am.

Details:

This 13 mile ride will start at the top near what we call “Red Flats”. Ride a fast 13 miles down gravel roads back to the base of Hunter Creek Road where the pavement meets the gravel. You can get picked up from here or take the rotating shuttle back to the Park. You may also ride all the way back to the Park (about 7.5 miles) if you choose, but the official ride is completed at the pavement break. Helmets and properly functioning bicycles are required. It is also recommended that you bring your own tools, tire repair, snacks, and ample water. There is no support, you will need to be prepared. Best types of bikes for his ride would be full suspension mountain bikes or hardtail mountain bikes. Feel free to message us on Facebook if you have any questions.
