To say that this ride is not for the faint of heart could be an understantment unless you happen to laugh in the face of 108 mile rides that gain 6624 vertical feet. ‘Around the Block’ includes two mountain passes (Teton and Pine Creek) which provide the majority of the climbing although there are plenty of other hills to climb. If the length and grind don’t bother you you are certainly in for a treat. You will find yourself in some beautiful country as you pedal beside creeks, rivers, reservoirs, rugged landscapes and pastures.
Several of the roads on this ride have significant traffic and little to no shoulder.
