This is a gravel cycling event incorporating some fun "challenges" along the 50-mile route. The event includes; entertainment, free tent camping, showers, bathrooms, 5 or 6 meals (depending on if you arrive Saturday night or Sunday morning), support stops, activities, and prime eclipse viewing with viewing glasses.

Challenge #1 is ax throwing. Each team member has to hit the target with an ax, or one bullseye before moving on to the next challenge.
Challenge #2 is the balloon bust! Each player throws darts at balloons until all the balloons for the team are busted before moving on to the next challenge.
Challenge #3 is a bag toss (cornhole). Each player must throw the bag in the corn hole to progress to the next challenge.
Challenge #4 is the egg-spoon race. Each player carries an egg on a spoon out and back and then hands the spoon and egg to the next team member in a relay event. Once everyone has successfully carried the egg, the team can go to the final challenge.
Challenge #5 is to make four three-point basketball shots. CAVEAT: Only one member can make two of the four shots. Once you've completed this challenge, ride back to the Witts Springs Community Center for your reward!
