Buzz about Total 200
Best things about Total 200? Course... and volunteers. Awesome course re-design. Loved it... and hated it at the same time. Great views... tough riding. Volunteers were INCREDIBLE. Thanks! Can't wait until next year! (Did I just say that out loud?)

The Ride: 200 miles in one day

How it Works
Total 200 is a fully supported double century bike ride (200 mile and 200 kilometer options), thanks to our volunteers and sponsors. It’s a full day, and their support makes all the difference when you’re trying to go the distance.

The day starts at 5:00 am with check-in, orientation and meet and greet. Pack your special needs bags into the lunch vehicle—so your things will be waiting for you when you get to lunch at the mid-point. We’ll review the course and rules of the ride, then be ready to roll at 6:00 am sharp.

From our starting point, we’ll take a lap around the US Capitol before following Pennsylvania Avenue towards Maryland. You’ll find check points located about every 25 miles along the route, where you can refuel on Hammer Nutrition products, food, fruit, and water. Our stop at mile 100—Point Lookout State Park—is a full lunch stop.

Start to finish, bike tech support crews will make sure we stay on track and ride smoothly.

Once we return, we’ll be greeted with a post ride celebration and time to bask in your accomplishments with old and new friends alike.

Route Options
There are two routes: a 200 mile route and a 200 kilometer (125 miles) route taking place on the same day. Actually much of the route is the same with a small portion of the 200k cutting across to merge with the return route of the 200 miler. More information is posted on the route page.
