The Best of Both 2020 Shipping

08/29/2020 - 08/30/2020

Since the debut of The Best of Both in the summer of 2018, the best of both dual-discipline bike race has brought a community of biker riders and racers together from across the nation to test their fitness, endurance, and desire, on some of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in North America. The Best of Both course splits down to 62-road miles, and 23-off-road miles, combining a little under 6,000 feet of ascent. Riders may switch from a road bike to a trail-friendly bike at the transition point, or take down the entire 85-miles on one bike in our “single-steed” category.

We start on the road. The course navigates a loop around the ever-present panorama of the snow-capped Cascade mountains, ebbing and flowing, climbing and descending on fortified high altitude pavement and gritty, chip sealed rural forestry grades. Riders wind up through the network of lakes and dense steeple-pine forestry, entering the cascade lakes highway, and summiting Mount Bachelor on its highest paved surface at 6,400 feet. Our single-track course combines fast-flowing "bermed-out" trails, rock gardens, and swoopy tunnels of pine that go with and against gravity. The course environment evolves with each passing mile, with a climb back to Wanoga and the finish arch.

Please note that if you ship your bike to yourself in care of any partner carrier location, you will have to present an ID when picking it up there.

You can pack your bike or gear or hire a shop from our bike shop finder to pack your bike for you. If you need a box or case, check out our store. You may schedule a pick up of your packed bike or gear from your house or your local bike shop, or you can drop it off at one of our partner carrier locations.
