RICH MOUNTAIN WARRIORS

We pride ourselves in having created a very challenging tour. If you look for opportunities to test your max abilities, WAM is a ride for you. 

We are upping the challenge. We challenge you to become a Rich Mountain Warrior! To become a Rich Mountain Warrior, it is no easy task. You must complete a difficult hill in the saddle. The 30 and 50 mile routes share the same monster of a Hill. The 70 mile route has it's own monster. See below to find out the length of the hill, average grade, and the max grade for your particular route.

Becoming a Rich Mountain Warrior will give you a year of bragging rights and a special prize at the end!
