Course Map & Description

Blue Streak Course Map (PDF)

This is a Time Trial rider’s dream course! The race begins on Skeel Avenue directly across from the Prairie Trace Golf Course Clubhouse (right before the pedestrian crossing). Cyclists will begin by heading south on Skeel Avenue and turning right into Huffman Prairie. Riders continue past Huffman Prairie to the gate at the back of the flight line. From there, it’s one road with no turns as riders make their way around the flight line finishing just before where they started for a 10-mile loop. With only right turns of 90 degrees, roads in great condition, and not a single foot of elevation gain, this course is built for personal records!
