The ONE HELENA HUNDRED
A Scenic Century along the Missouri River
JULY 12th – 2014
Proceeds help support the advancement of cycling in the Helena area
The Helena Bicycle Club invites you to join us on our annual century ride, the One Helena Hundred, on Saturday July 12, 2014. Riders have their choice of distances - the metric century (100 kilometers/62 miles) an 80 mile option, or the standard century (100 miles). Come retrace Lewis and Clark's steps (with a slightly faster mode of transportation!) as they approached the Gates of the Mountains over 200 years ago.
Bicycle from Cascade south toward Wolf Creek and back for the metric century. 80 and 100 mile riders will continue south of Wolf Creek for an additional 8 miles to their turnaround point at the terminus of the Recreation Road. They then head back to Cascade for lunch. 100 mile riders then complete a short leg north of Cascade toward Ulm and back to complete the 100 mile course.
The route is gentle, meandering alongside the Missouri River with some small rolling hills. Lunch is provided at Cascade City Park.
Registration continues online until July 9th. Registering before July 1st will guarantee you some SWAG. Registration fees increase July 1st. No refunds.
Route maps with elevations: Metric Century Full Century
Refreshments and restrooms will be available at 3 rest stops and the lunch stop. Support services are provided for minor mechanical problems along the route.
