ROUTE MAPS

Wanna put a RideWithGPS route on your Garmin device?

Refer to these instructions online — or watch the instructional video below. (Our routes are well-marked on the road and your Event Guide has detailed tear-out route maps with turn-by-turn cue sheets. So even if you can’t get these maps to talk to your device, don’t sweat it. We’ve got you covered!)

SATURDAY CENTURY | YELLOW

104.7 miles 

STARTS AT: St. Paul’s United Methodist Church  |  The Saturday Century got some new course variations in 2019, including more mileage before lunch (76 miles) — so even super-fast riders will be sure to have the full buffet available when they roll in to Sangerville-Towers! Additional course changes include more mileage east of Interstate 81 near the Piedmont Battlefield.   

SAT CENTURY | RIDE WITH GPS
SAT METRIC | RIDE WITH GPS

SATURDAY METRIC | ORANGE

64 miles 

STARTS AT: St. Paul’s United Methodist Church  |  Metric Century for Saturday has some spectacular views. But with over 4,100 ft in elevation gain throughout the course, you’ll be working for them! NOTE: The route below was recently corrected for 2021 cue updates. These cues are more current than in the 2021 Event Guide (one slight and obvious change at mile 43.3).

SATURDAY BOBB | GREEN

33.7 miles 

STARTS AT: Sangerville-Towers Ruritan Community Center, Mt. Solon  |  The “Bobb Route” is so named because it courses thru Bridgewater, Ottobine and Briery Branch among other small and delightful communities. It’s a lovely route with wonderful scenery and — by a long shot — has more flat roads than any of our other routes, either Saturday or Sunday.

SAT BOBB | RIDE WITH GPS
SAT FAMILY | RIDE WITH GPS

SATURDAY FAMILY | PINK

STARTS AT: Sangerville-Towers Ruritan Community Center, Mt. Solon  |  The Family Route is a fairly flat ride with about 700 feet of elevation gain over 12.8 miles. This ride can be shortened to 7 miles by taking the “super not-so-secret-shortcut”, depending on how far the little ones want to ride. It starts and ends at Sangerville-Towers Ruritan — our lunch stop — which is less than a mile from Natural Chimneys State park. NOTE: The route below was updated in 2019 and has not changed since, hence the “2019” in the route name. This is the correct route for 2021.
