1 - This electronically timed race is strictly a fundraising event for amateur bicyclists and is not sanctioned by any race body or organization. Prize money is for rider motivation and adding some additional excitement to the ride.

2 - Our route app has our route rated as expert level but others would say it's more intermediate. Either way you must be in good physical riding shape to complete this course. If you have any medical issues at all we recommend you do not race this course.

3 - This route has been set up basically 50% gravel, 50% road and is geared toward gravel bike riding but any other type of bike is acceptable as long as it is not motorized in any way, electric, gas engine or other.

There are public restrooms at the summit view area.

We do NOT want cars following the race route. You will need a day discovery pass to park on state park land. These can be obtained at the ranger station located at park entry on Mt. Spokane Rd.
8 - After you’ve completed your race, for those of you who need a ride back down to the parking area at East Valley High School, we will have shuttle buses and bike transportation available for you to take down the mountain. We plan on buses rotating through every 30 minutes or so and you must have your bus ticket with you. This bus service is ONLY for riders, no exceptions. You must sign up for this service when you pay your entry fee.

13- There will be a security guard posted all day at the East Valley High School to watch over your parked cars. There will also be two guards stationed at the awards area to watch over your bikes while you're enjoying yourselves. We will also be checking ID’s for entry into the beer garden area so make sure you have identification on you.

6 - Your ride will be complete once you cross the finish line pad at the very top of Mt. Spokane. Your race is now over so carefully and slowly ride back down the mountain on Summit Road to what is commonly called “snowmobile parking” area to Selkirk Lodge where awards tents will be set up surrounded by food trucks and beer garden. Keep in mind when making your way down other riders will still be riding up to the top.

7 - Your bike will have a brief inspection before entering the start pad area to make sure it is not motorized.

8 - This is a FOLLOW THE RULES OF THE ROAD RIDE so all riders must stay to the right of the road in SINGLE FILE. This is the law and will be monitored by race marshals and possibly State Patrol. If you need to pass another rider do so with great care and check for traffic first.

10 - A staggered start time will begin approximately 8:00am and continue until 9:30am. You do not need to be at the start area at 8:00am, you will have an hour and a half to cross the start pad. Keep in mind this is a timed race and there will be no group start. One person at a time will cross the start pad. We suggest that riders who feel they will complete the course quickly don’t start until closer to 9:00 am because you may be waiting for some time at the awards tent area for results.

11 - There will be three male categories and three female for a total of six race categories; Age 16-40 years, 41-60 and 61 and up.

13 - If you feel you cannot complete the course you will have a couple bail out options. If you make it to Kit Carson Loop you can walk/ride out to the Mt. Spokane Road hairpin turn parking lot and call for help or wait for a race marshal to assist you back down the mountain or to the awards tent area where you will be able to call for a ride. Do not assume a race official will be readily available.  

14 - Some areas of the course may not have cell service so don’t assume you will be able to get help with your phone.  Our marshals and water stop people will have two-way radios to assist you.

15 - The race will be run rain or shine and no refunds will be provided for any reason. Please consider this is a fund raiser and your entry money will be going to a very worthy cause even if you were unable to attend.Last but not least, have fun and thank you for helping us fund research for cures to cancers.

16 - Drafting, or team drafting is not allowed. It's crucial that all racers thoroughly understand and strictly adhere to the rules of the road. We're committed to maintaining a level playing field by disallowing drafting. While we'll have race marshals on duty, it's important to remember that they can't be omnipresent, which may present challenges in monitoring this. At a marshal's discretion, we reserve the right to disqualify any racer from prize money attempting to gain an unfair advantage. i.e., Cutting course, any motorized bike, team drafting, etc. There will be instances where faster riders might catch slower ones and "draft" due to being safe and setting up a pass.
