Route Information

The long route will have a challenge. If you can finish the long course under 2 hours you will win the coveted Tour De Possum patch. This is the only part of the ride that will be timed. If you finish under two hours you will collect your patch immediatly at the finish from one of the TCRC members working the event. There will be a large timer running at the finish line that will be the official time. Please choose whether you're attempting the sub 2hr long route or just the long route as the riders that are attempting the sub 2 hr will start first.

Please review the route in advance of the ride.  Note that after crossing the finish line on the long route, you must turn around to head back to Yuma Rd in order to arrive back at Oak Glen Baptist Church (starting point).
