The 18.1 Mile Road BikeThe 18.1 mile road course (Google Map) makes a loop south of Philomath on smooth country roads. It features a moderate hill in the first five miles. The two mile Decker hill, which peaks at 720 ft at mile 9.3, is followed by an exciting descent. The usual mountain bike course will not be open this year do to logging in Starker forest. A mountain bike division is available.
The XC course
