Event notes
GH 2.3 Redmond Ridge is a mixed surface course you navigate on your bike on the trails and streets of Redmond, 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.

The GH 2.3 Course is ~21 miles with 1,500 feet of climbing. It's great on a gravel or cyclocross bike or an MTB hardtail. I'm not going to stop you from riding your doublecrown 5-inch travel bike. Tubeless tires with sealant are recommended for blackberry vines and sharp rocks.

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! Only where you start and finish.

You can ride whenever you like between Saturday November 13, and Sunday, November 28 (when I take the course down). Pick your day to ride, based on weather, work, your astrology sign, whatever.

Because there isn't a speed component to GH 2.3, I'm making this 2-person teams only and encouraging you to ride with a friend who's faster or slower than you are.

After you register, I'll send you a start location and tell you how to find a a QR code to scan. It will open up a 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 with a fun ride in the books.
