SODA CREEK SCRAMBLE July 28, 2021

GENERAL INFORMATION

Welcome to one of the coolest venues in the series; the Keystone Stables!
This year’s event is BYOF and BYOB…(Bring Your Own Food and Bring Your Own Beverage)
There is a fire ban so unfortunately there will not be the bonfire that we’ve enjoyed in the past. Despite that, this venue is awesome and we have good course for all categories!

One BIG CHANGE for his year is that Sport Women, Open Women 45+ and Open 60+ are going on the BIG COURSE!
We hope you like it!

Also, the Start Line is at the intersection of Soda Ridge Road/Keystone Ranch Road. ALL categories will ride east on Soda Ridge Road to Keystone Gulch Road to start off. We did this in 2019 and it was a hit.
