Rock y Road 50/50 Race

Mike and I are working out the details of our race idea, but for now, we are aiming to do the race on October 20th, 2007 at Agua Caliente at 6:00am.

The mountain bike course will be 50 miles of dirt road and single track through Reddington, Italian Trap Tank, AZT, La Milagrosa, approximately 5500 feet of climbing, which will take 4-7 hours. This is a technical ride.

The road bike course is going to be an out-in-back up to Mt Lemon, also 50 miles. Not sure about the turn-around point right now, but it is going to be a sweet climb, probably 5k-7k of climbing.

We are going to have a few aid stations, so we will be looking for volunteers. Also, the idea of making a shirt is out there. So I might be asking family and friends for ideas and help :) Let me know if you are interested in volunteering or helping out the cause.

So is the idea to have one bike to do the whole deal or can you stash a road bike or a wheel set for the road ride?

You can use 1 or 2 bikes, or change the wheel set. Yuri, are you thinking about coming down to join us?
