Primary route rolls tomorrow from Mike’s at 8:30 for The Beast.   Not intimidated by it, folks wanted more miles so once on top we’ll try to stay warm with another stoopid Pump Hillz Route before we finally drop off and head back to Mikes.    53 miles, 4500 feet, and yep Mighty Mike will add a bend loop at the end to get to 60 for anyone wanting more.  Lots of ways to short this by heading back down at various points.  Route a bit jumbled as to avoid coming down Taft since it’s down to one lane.  Here’s the map:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/41728145

 Alternate route also rolls from Mike’s at 8:30 but comes up the W and then heads to the top of The Beast to meet the survivors.    Folks are encouraged to take this Alt so we cut down on the # of folks climbing The Beast.   This route will have even more vertical than The Beast Route since it not only climbs the W but then also climbs out of the Marshall Creek Gorge to meet survivors.  Here’s the map to get to the top of The Beast to join up:   https://ridewithgps.com/routes/41728215
