Castle Country Century (& Metric Century)
June 19, 2021

Come join us for the 6th Annual 2021 Castle Country Century Ride! This years riders have the option of either our original 102 mile ride or a metric century (64.8 miles). Full Century riders begin at beautiful Madsen Bay at Scofield State Park riding along the shoreline, over the damn and through Scofield provides a nice warm up before beginning the ascent to David Eccles Scenic By-Way. An aid/water station awaits you before you make the final push to 9,770’ feet above sea level. As you take in the beautiful mountain scenery only Castle Country can provide, you will grasp why our ride separates itself from all others. Once at peak elevation and after passing several mountain reservoirs you will begin a descent of 4,000′ to the town of Huntington where lunch/aid/water station will be waiting for you. This is where the Metric Century riders will begin, at the top spot as you descend Huntington Canyon. The course then takes you through the towns of Huntington, Cleveland, and Elmo in Emery County where you will experience the environmental shift from mountain to desert. Another aid/water station awaits you to top you off for the home stretch. Riders will then make their way north through Wellington ending up at the finish line at Washington Park in Price, UT of Carbon County. Snacks and beverages will be provided free of charge as riders take photographs, and modify their times on Strava so they can tell lies to their friends.
