22nd Annual Mining Country Challenge - Saturday, March 15, 2014
Saddle up, Pardner, it's time to hit the trail, and some trail it is! We're not talking about some easy little jaunt into the desert on some mule with no name (apologies to America) with a pick and shovel hung over your shoulder. No siree! However, when you see what you'll be climbing, you may want to reconsider that mule! Or maybe get a mountain goat! Climb. Climb. Then climb some more. That's the Mining Country Challenge. It's not for everyone, but if you have aspirations to really put your climbing abilities to the test, this is the ride for you. By the end of the 96 mile ride you'll have climbed 7000 feet. A less strenuous metric century option (actual distance 66 miles) is also available. The ride starts in Old Town Superior in the heart of Arizona's mining country. See Major Events for more ride and registration information.
31st Annual Answer to the Challenge - April 25-27, 2014
At 325 miles, the Answer to the Challenge will confront you with three consecutive days of century riding. Along the way you'll be asked to do over 22,000 feet of climbing and the weather can range anywhere from cold and wet to hot and dry. The route takes you from Scottsdale to Strawberry on day one. Day two continues on to Prescott over Mingus Mountain. Day three takes you from Prescott back to Scottsdale. The scenery along the way is some of the best that Arizona has to offer. See Major Events for more ride and registration information.
