Slightly Different Courses for 2011

If you know the trails and/or have a new map you might be able to make heads or tails out of the description. [ 2011 Course description and GPS links ]

  • Beginners will be around 9 miles, you don't have to end on a long uphill, yet still plenty of classic Coops riding. Actually same course as last year.

  • Sports will be around 15 miles, no Rock City, Ridge Trail or the Rail Grade. Get to do Libor, Favorite, the Powerline, and the Reservoir Trails.

  • Experts will be more like 21+ miles. No doubling up on the Rail Grade, but you get to do pretty much everything else! Only part you do twice will be the lower Reservoir Trail and a small section of Roadside Trail going the other way.
