OTHER RIDE DETAILS
The course has been carefully laid out to take advantage of the many back roads and scenic byways that distinguish our area. There are enough changes in elevation to challenge seasoned riders. The Wild Ride (50K) has an elevation increase of 2,461 feet and the Wilder Ride has an increase of 4,436 feet. Both rides end back at Feeney Park where our wonderful volunteers will have prepared a chicken-in-a-barrel barbecue. Riders can choose to first have a massage or go directly to the chow line.

This event is hosted by Feeney Park Foundation. All proceeds benefit Feeney Park, a non-profit community sports and recreational facility in Murphys, complete with youth soccer and baseball fields, skate park, walking trails, picnic areas, an 18 hole disc golf course, and an amphitheater.
All the climbing and zippy downhills will be there without the rigors of the rough roads of early Mr. Frog’s Wild Rides. The"Wilder" long route includes a ride to New Melones Lake. Both routes feature a time trial near the finish if desired. Results of the time trial will be posted at the conclusion of the ride. There is one mile of gravel in the long ride--that is perfectly rideable--so one can pretend briefly to be a randonneur at the Paris Roubaix. Elevation gain is 4436 ft. for the 100K and 2461 ft. for the 50K ride.
Check in day of ride does not start until 7 AM, but you may also check in the evening before 4:30-6:30 PM. The route does not open until 7:30AM. All riders must start by 9AM.
Registration on-site requires cash or check (no capability for credit).
Parking is free at the park or close by.
Time Trials are optional for all riders either route.
