What is the Death March Ride?

Just over a week from now, Death March Ride participants will be eagerly looking for cemeteries... but why?


Two-rider teams choose their own routes to cemetery checkpoints located in and around the Hoosier National Forest. Five checkpoints are mandatory; the others give a time credit, deducted from the elapsed ride time. Two of the mandatory are chosen at random race morning; as are two "dead" cemeteries that won't count for anything. The lowest net times win, in what's perhaps Indiana's most unique bicycle race. It's a lot like an adventure race all on wheels.


Routes are a majority gravel, with some paved roads, and (depending on route choice and mandatories), some trail.


Sound like your kind of fun? It's coming up in just over a week! Check it out and sign up today!

Central Indiana Adventure

October 12, 2024

Mounds State Park (Anderson, IN)


Central Indiana Adventure is the "little sibling" of the MISSION. It makes a great first "longer" race, at 12 hours; or try the beginner-friendly 4-hour CIA Lite.
