    How many laps can you complete in this six hour endurance race? The route is perfect for Mountian bikes as well as Monster-Cross Cyclo bikes! You will experience custom built single track, pavement, and gravel roads. Because this race uses 2 miles of HWY 215 and 80% of the route is private property, this could be the most unique 6 hour endurance mountain bike/ cyclo-cross race in the country!
    You will experience honey-hole climb, B-Branch descent, nature lovers zig-zag and the Kemper Climb!

    If you visit *At The Ridge FunTrails*****************"Pisgah's New Playground" - HOME and click on races, see six hours of balsam grove map. 75% of this race is private, custom built trails so the only map I can share is the one on the website.

    For anyone considering this in the future... a cross bike may be a better option. There is less than 4 miles of trail and 6-7 miles of paved road/gravel road. Also, their timing operation was a huge fail. They had some girls in charge who seemed less than interested in being there and didn't acknowledge you when you went through the start finish line. This created a huge finagle with proper scoring at the end of the day. You can read more at: 6 Hours of Balsam Grove ? FASTER MUSTACHE
