Long route - https://www.strava.com/routes/17750730 600 feet vertical gain

Mid-route - 18 miles https://www.strava.com/routes/17744762 239 feet vertical gain

You may be on your own on the mid and short loops - but the long route riders will catch up if you ride a casual 10-12 mph pace.

Lights are required front and rear - reflectors make you more visible - the route has a few stretches that dont have street lighting - so bring enough front lighting to monitor the road surface.
