The 22-mile and 35-mile routes are both loops that begin and end at Shonto. The 22-mile ride travel north on the Tall Mountain Road (BIA 6310), to Navajo National Monument and back to Shonto on road 221, while the 35-mile loop goes north to Tall Mountain, does some serious climbing and then loops back around to Shonto. Both routes are very scenic, among pinon and juniper forest, and include expansive views over the surrounding area, including vast canyons and the looming dome of Naatsisaan.
There are aid stations throughout the course, event t-shirts and post-race food. Camping is available on Friday night and a local vendor will have food for sale.
Bikes are available for loan and may also be earned through the Dine’ Bike Project’s “Bike Exchange” program.
