The course provides mass-quantities of singletrack—and—it’s almost entirely unduplicated trail! There’s so much singletrack you might actually seek something wider after a while. Moreover, about the only non-singletrack sections of the 21-mile-one-lap race are the short start road, a few yards of asphalt, and that is it. And not only is it singletrack, it’s freaking majestic singletrack.
The XXC course is back for 2009—a trail Odyssey. Double XC’ers leave the state park and traipse across the coolest big-ring pedal-assist slight downhill on the Middle Mountain Ridge—all the way—to route 125. Then, take a quick lasso-loop on ancient CCC, blueberry bush-infested trails of Brushy Ridge, and then you’ll know that not many people have pedaled through there before! Later, after climbing route 125 again for a 4 mile ascent (followed by a 1/2 mile singletrack that burns-baby-burns), you rejoin the 21 mile XC loop, making the best course on the planet 10 steps better.
