AML_X is a Billy Rice-inspired “Yo-Yo”… pedaling 251 miles north from Virginia Tech’s War Memorial Chapel to the WV/MD border… there and back again.

The EXTREME route adds many miles of gravel and climbs NOT PEDALED on the CLASSIC AML_400 loop.

In total, the AML EXTREME pedals 502 miles with more than 45,000 feet of ascent in the “yo-yo” format… a Tour Divide shakedown that will leave riders well-prepared for the rigors of Canada and Montana.

This solo, self-supported adventure will observe the bikepacking ethos of other “ultras” in this discipline.
