Quick update

  • Cue sheets and a course map will be provided at the start.  There will be four cue sheets and they will fit in a standard sandwich sized ziplock bag.  
  • Parking is available along Webster Street or at Davis park (one block west of the start).
  • The start of the ride (and the meeting point) will be at the corner of Webster st and 1st ave (Hwy 1).  If you need a specific address to plug into your GPS, send me an email and I'll reply with that info. 
  • We've had a wet week, so the B roads will have at least some hike-a-bike.  I'll be scouting them out tomorrow morning to see how passable they are, but I've already got a plan B if it's looking like a slog-fest.  I'll go over that before the start of the ride.

Moonshine Metric 2014 Route

Course info for Moonshine Metric 2014

Note: This course is slightly modified from years past due to impassable bridge construction.  If you're using an old GPX file or cues for the ride this year, plan on a brisk swim.

Moonshine Metric Numbah Four

Set your calendars, this year the Moonshine Metric will be held on Saturday, Sept. 13th in Mount Vernon, IA.  Start time will be 7pm, giving you just enough daylight to navigate the early B roads.  Course length will be in the 65 mile range and the ride will be no-drop, within reason.

Details to come in the next couple days, but it's pretty much the same as past years with the exception of the course, which will likely be modified slightly due to a bridge that's out (the only passable area is on private property, or you foo's would have a water crossing this year).  To enter, just send me an email at with your name, general location of origin, and any other information you deem pertinent (longest belch, best snapchat screenie, number of childhood wedgies given/received, etc).

See you there!
