The Prize Package

Reach deep into your bag of tricks
and pull out your favorite most rewarding ride. The one with all the good sections, all the good stops, and all the good spots. Ask yourself, What Would Peter Stetina do? And do that! #WWPSD
Any length and all nature of rides count.
That said, ideally, your ride delivers on all three FKT fronts; Fastest, Funnest, Freakiest—like your “go-to” 75-miler with the best section of gravel in town and a place to safely trundle the sunset away.
And/or maybe your ride is “fine-tuned” to specifically deliver on only one of FKT front.
For example what about the 35-mile tangle of alleys, paths, single track and largely unknown neighborhood streets that when strung together add-up to 7,394 feet of climbing. Or a slow roll out to a gravel segment smash. Or a hundred mile epic linking hot springs and miniature golf. They all count!
Honestly, if it’s mixed surface and notable on just about any level, it’s probably perfect.
Plot it on a map
using any of the many course-making technologies available to cyclists in 2020. *Extra credit if you make an analog map.

on the route of your choice.
