Barn Burner is a 104 mile endurance mountain bike event. The course is a 26 mile loop, and is on Forest Service roads. The course is not technically challenging, and is considered a "roadie" mountain bike course...meaning it is beginner friendly(ish) and fast for those with more experience/endurance/EPO/whiskey. There are a few sketchy spots to keep you honest and climbs to make your lungs hurt a bit. All in all you are riding at altitude, in cooler weather, with cool people and camping out - what more can you ask for.
