Disclaimer for Big Horn 100
This is a wilderness ride and with any wilderness ride there are risks. The risks particular to the Big Horn 100 include: "The Big Horn ride is the ultimate endurance challenge. Riders should understand that they will be riding in a remote wilderness with limited access to assistance in many places along the trail. They should come prepared to deal with dramatic weather changes, remote riding conditions and limited volunteers to provide assistance. A crew is not required but is strongly suggested."

Due to very low rider turn out (Except the Big Horn 100) last year, we have limited our rides this year to one day or two days and will have no pioneer rides. We are Hoping it will raise our numbers to the point where riders can get full points with AERC for completion and best condition.
There is still a place… Where neighbors help neighbors, where the measure of a man is his character, where the hearts of everyday heroes reflect the timeless spirit of America.

Just spoke with the Thermopolis Fairgrounds manager. He has 48 horse barns and would love to have anyone come stay. The cost is $10 a night and $15 if you want to hook up to electricity! It is a wonderful place to stay with lots of room and everything you need before the Big Horn 100 or after! Just pull in and set up. Contact Mark Bader at 307-867-2246 if you have any questions.
