Day two will take a 47-mile ride along the Colorado River, with a 9 a.m. start time at Aarchway Inn. On day three, participants will get the chance to cruise through Arches National Park on a 44-mile, 4,700-foot elevation gain ride. The festival will wind up on the fourth day with a 38-mile ride along Potash Road.

For all the rides there will be vehicle support and aid stations equipped with water, food and volunteers.
