Caldera 250/500 Registration Opens Now

Okee dokes.  With the Caldera 250/500 exactly two months from today, we figured it’s time.

Click here to register.  We are capping the Grand Depart at 45 participants.  Honestly, we have no clue how many people will be interested in this sufferfest/magical carpet ride – but we’re covering our arses.

  • If necessary, riders will be wait-listed in the order their registration was received, and bumped up in line as people back out.  Kinda like flying stand-by.
  • Want to ride the route, but not available for the GD?  No problem, but you’ll still need to register for an Individual Time Trial – only registered folks will receive gpx tracks, cue sheets, route updates, and be considered “official finishers”.
  • If the registration form is confusing, or you have any questions at all – please don’t hesitate to Contact Us or post in the comments of this blog post.

We’re hoping to send out the gpx tracks and cue sheets for both the 250 and 500 around August 1st.  We’re doing our best to make sure the tracks and cues are accurate and 100% legal, so it’s likely there will be some updates after the initial release – but all in all, the route is done.  Let’s get excited like the Pointer Sisters!

I'm about to lose control and I think I like it.

Road Trip – Global Fat Bike Summit 2015: Jackson, WY

Alan's Mountain Biking Adventures

For the 2nd year in a row, I jammed out to the Fat Bike Summit with a crew from Mammoth.  Last year, it was in Ogden, UT – read about it here.  This year, it was at Snow King Resort in Jackson, WY.  For those that don’t know, Snow King is the O.G. ski resort right in the heart of Jackson that opened in 1930.  Gets overshadowed by Jackson Hole Resort 12 miles up the road – think of it like June Mountain compared to Mammoth Mountain, except you can night ski for $25!

Rolling from the Antler Inn to Snow King - let the Summit begin! Rolling from the Antler Inn to Snow King – let the Summit begin!

Anyhoo, jumped in the turbo diesel Jetta Wagon with Jen and Dan at 5:30am.  Bikes and skis and fritos and tangerines packed.  Wyoming bound.  After driving about 4 hours each, and Dan only stalling 3 times, we hit the town square.  Checked in…
