It is a challenging ride with great SAG support The mass start will be at 8:45 am for those riding 30 miles, escorted by the Wheeling Police Department, with road guards posted at critical intersections. The 10-mile ride is also an escorted ride on the trail and will begin about 9 a.m., shortly after the mass start and heads South on the trail.
