The Ride – Getting Sweaty

What do we mean by ‘enduro-style mountain bike event’? Heels on Wheels is not a race. Enduro-style means there are timed segments throughout the course. There will be four timed descents and one optional timed uphill challenge. The result? You get to cruise the uphills at your own pace, get to know some of the other riders, and then push yourself on the timed downhill sections. In short, we’ve structured the event the way we usually ride – fun and relaxed on the uphills and fast on the downhills.


The Cocktail Party – Getting Fancy

Yes, this event includes a cocktail party. After the ride, we are hosting the ‘Heels’ part of the event at the Snake River Brew Pub at 7:30 p.m. This is where us ladies get to put on our party dresses and talk about the fun we had on our bikes all day. We will several prizes, and one lucky lady will take
a brand new cruiser bike home with her!


The Course - Getting Detailed

The course will start and end at the Stagecoach at the bottom of Teton Pass. There is an optional starting point at Phillips Ridge Trailhead for those who would prefer to shuttle up the Pass. You will need to organize your own shuttle. The course is 22 miles with 3,698 feet of climbing and descending.

From the Stagecoach, riders will pedal up the pathway to the base of the Old Pass Road. They will then either continue up the Old Pass Road or ascend the Crater Trail for the optional timed uphill challenge. From there, they will take the Phillips Connector and cross over Hwy 22 to the Phillips Ridge trail network. The course will include the Snotel, Arrow, and Phillips Ridge Road trails, and conclude with a final descent down the Phillips Ridge trail. The course concludes at the Stagecoach, though participants are welcome to arrange pickups at the bottom of Phillips Ridge trail.
