The mass start will be at 8:45 a.m. for those riding 30 miles, escorted by the Wheeling Police Department, with road guards posted at critical intersections. The 10-mile ride is also an escorted ride on the trail and will begin shortly after the mass start. The 100 km (62 miles) ride will leave the trail near the Ohio/Brooke County line for a hilly loop through Bethany and West Liberty with a stop at Bethany College. It is a challenging ride with great SAG support. Lunch will be served between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Heritage Port and there will be entertainment from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., so returning riders can sit under the shade trees or tents and relax.
