Prepared to climb?

Pisgah means summit in Hebrew, at least that’s what we learned on Wikipedia. And, it is completely fitting for this ride. The area around the Loess Hills State Forest is amazing and hilly and beautiful. The route for this race will swing around Preparation Canyon State Park and wind through the valleys of the Little Sioux River and Soldier River Cutoff. The geography in this area is diverse and challenging. We’re estimating the elevation on this race will be over 4,000 ft. But, it will be worth it. Ever climb opens up to another vista and every descent lets you discover a new and less travelled area.

So, if you’re looking for a challenge and you want to be surrounded by good people, Preparation Pisgah is your race. Pisgah’s City Park has great facilities, including camping and showers.
