Bike Routes

The Fremont Area Road Tour offers riders a variety of routes to choose from. Riders can choose to complete any portion of four routes ranging from 13 to 30 miles or riders can choose to ride the Metric Century Route, which combines parts of the other four routes into an approximate 65 mile road tour. Elevation profiles and route descriptions are provided below. New for 2018, we are working on having route directions available through smart phone apps. 

All routes start at 7:30 AM in Lander City Park and end at 2:00 PM.  Aid stations are located on all routes and riders are welcome to return to City Park for aid station services anytime during the ride.

Metric Century Route

Stats:  Approximately 65 miles. This route takes riders up Sinks Canyon to the top of the switchbacks (Fossil Hill), returning to town to complete the Squaw Baldwin Loop, North Second Loop, and then Lyons Valley Loop. For elevation profiles, please see each individual route below.   


Squaw-Baldwin Loop

Stats:  Approximately 14 miles. Route travels clockwise. The Squaw-Baldwin Loop is a scenic ride with views of breathtaking red bluffs. You will have a steady climb for the first six miles, with scenic views at the top, followed by an easy descent on Baldwin when returning to Lander City Park.

Sinks Canyon Out and Back

Stats:  Approximately 30 miles. Route travels out and back, with the turn-around at Fossil Hill.  Riding to Sinks Canyon is a local favorite, and it might just be your favorite, too!  There is a gradual, but noticeable ascent to Sinks Canyon, and it becomes more challenging once you enter the canyon.  The views will help distract you from the challenging ride.  As the ride is reversed, you can enjoy the descent, and the view.
