We are putting together the MT1000 again for July 17th-22nd 2011. We will be starting at the Darby Logger Days grounds, just as we did last year. The route will be different, from the route we ran last year. The only part of the route that will be the same is throught the Gravelly's into Sheep Creek. The route can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/mt1k2011/ The final routes will be available as soon as possible. Which means a week or so prior to the start of the event. It takes a while to get the snow cleared out and routs ran prior to the event. This will be a mostly dirt, moderate, scenic route through the back roads of Montana. Each day will be aprox 168 miles. I recommend a fuel range of 150 + miles just to be on the safe side. Alternates, will once again be available and this year will have some more difficult sections. There will be a couple of pre-ridden single track as well that will require a smaller more woods worthy bikes. You will have to be responable for your own sleeping accomidations. We are planning on stoping at a few campgrounds, however they will not be reserved. You may have to do some primitive camping. We will depart Sunday AM, July 17th, from Darby. We will be returning to Darby on Friday July 22nd, for the start of West Fest.
