Event notes
GH 2.1 Lake Washington is a COVID-compliant gravel course you navigate on your bike on trails, paths, and roads to ride counter-clockwise around Lake Washington. It’s a bit like orienteering, but different in some aspects, because you don’t have a map or a compass. You won't know exactly where you're going, but your trusty phone will help you out. The emphasis is on bike riding and discovery using simple phone tools, not hardcore navigational skills or a Deliverance-like ordeal.

GH 2.1 is 41.9 miles as laid out, but maybe you ride a bit more.

This is not an event. You're purchasing access to a course like buying a guidebook or map, but(!) you won't know where you're going!

You can ride whenever you like between Friday, February 12, and Sunday, March 7 (when I take the course down). Pick your day to ride.

You can register in one of 5 categories - Men Solo, Women Solo, Men's Team, Women's Team, or Mixed Team.

You’ll start at one of 6 start locations - Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Woodinville, or Kenmore. Once there, you'll get a QR code to scan, it will open up a coordinate-based location on Google Maps, and then you navigate your way to that location. Once at the location, you’ll look for the checkpoint, which will be in the form of a QR code with a coordinate for the next checkpoint. String them all together, and you’ll be back at your starting point.

I'm adding in a competitive element for GH 2.1. There will be 8 Timed Sectors along the course. The rider or team with the lowest accumulated time across all of the Timed Sectors will win their category. Prizes are winner-take-all with $30 for the Solo categories, and $60 for the Team categories.
