Come to Big Lake and give our Recreational Class teams a cheer as the set out for a moderately paced ride to Nome. This group of recreational riders are setting out on a 1,000-plus mile ride along the northern route of the Iditarod Trail. Typically a more casual affair, we send these riders out for a big adventure just before we setup for the Pro Class restart on Sunday.
