Who doesn't like a good ride among amazing scenery with other like minded folks!?
As you ride on Forest Service roads in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem you will be greeted with thick pine forests, big open views and flourishing fields.
With 30, 60, and 120 mile distances there is a ride distance for everyone.
30 and 60 will be marked courses. For the 120 you will need a navigation device or use the provided map.
Disclaimer: Getting lost is not our fault. :)
Come for the RIDE stay for the CAMPing!
The event headquarters is off the beaten path, by only 2 miles but will feel like you’re in the backcountry,
The building will act as headquarters and allow us to set up registration indoors.
There are adjoining bathrooms with a huge gravel parking lot to camp and park in.
Whether you have a RV, travel van life or car camp there is a spot for you at or around headquarters. You can stay in the lot or quickly disappear into the woods where no one will see you.
This is not a campground although there are some nearby.
So, there are no electric hook-ups or running water. But again there are bathrooms.

What do you mean!?
We will have a big ole grill going, with a couple grill tenders, for the Loaded Potato Bar and who knows what else might make it over those coals but remember we are encouraging a CAMP out so we might as well instigate a COOK off too!
Lets keep it fun, casual and loose.
We know some of you are proud of your cooking skills and maybe a bit more serious around the coals. Grill masters if you will.
Do you have grandma's secret recipe, bubba's favorite meat rub, or that meat/dish you perfected over the fire – Bring it and put it up to the tasters test!
For this first year we are going to put these rules/guidelines out there, just to see what happens:
Dish: Your favorite camp food cooked on a grill or a piece of cast iron, set up outside.
Cook enough to share some bites with others, you know maybe make some friends, but ultimately you need to turn in enough plated bites for several 'judges' to test. Rumor has it Guy Fieri will be coming...
Awards - TBD.
Potatoes, the fruit of Idaho!
There will be baked potatoes and a variety of toppings including…butter, bacon, sour cream, chives, beans, salsa, cheese, broccoli to help you recover from your day on the saddle.
Potato Flavored FUN FACTS
Potato blossoms used to be a big hit in royal fashion. Potatoes first became fashionable when Marie Antoinette paraded through the French countryside wearing potato blossoms in her hair.
The average American eats about 124 pounds of potatoes per year while Germans eat about twice as much.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest potato grown was 7 pounds 1 ounce by J. East (1953) and J. Busby (1982) of Great Britain.
