Which Route is Right for Me?

RETURN TO DETAILED ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Choose from seven different riding groups/routes.

Trail riders: 45km/day avg. over terrain with moderate technical paths, including some singles. Stronger trail riders who reach time check-points, will have the option of riding additional “Enduro” segments that will add 10-15km of riding more technical trails and longer singles.

If you are a road rider, there are 4 different groups you can join:

Training for road groups:

ROAD:

Ride 2-3 times/week (each ride should be 1-2 hours) for a weekly average of 80 kilometers (50 miles).

ROAD PLUS:

Ride 2-3 times/week (each ride should be 1-2 hours) for a weekly average of 100 kilometers (60 miles).

CHALLENGE:

Ride 3-4 times/week (each ride should be 1.5 to 4 hours) for a weekly average of 150 kilometers (95 miles). Challenge riders should feel comfortable riding in a paceline.

TOURING::

Ride at least once/week (for 1-2 hours) for a weekly average of 40 kilometers (25 miles).

The Hiking Route is for those who want to participate in Wheels of Love but do not ride. Hikes are from 2-4 hours in length and hikers stay in the same hotels as all the road riding groups (Challenge, Road, Road Plus, Touring).

If after riding in the route you select, you find it too fast or too slow and would like to switch, you will be able to do so after dinner in the hotel lobby.

If you are still not sure which group you should select, send us an email and we will be happy to assist you.
