Many rides, one finish. Choose your adventure!
While we all love to ride our bikes, everyone is different. The Sawtooth 200 provides the opportunity to choose the adventure that works best for you. Be it a relay team that offers the camaraderie of your closest cycling buddies working together as a group, the full distance in the unprecedented Sawtooth Uncut version, or the solo effort of laying it out there on your own for the 100 mile TT, you won't be disappointed. No matter what you choose, the day ends with a great party and stories at the finish line in Ketchum.
The original. The relay dates back to the beginning of the event and is what the Sawtooth is most famous for. It is the same challenging and scenic course as from the event's beginning, but you can divide and conquer it however you like. There are two course distances: the 180 mile that offers 2, 4 or 6 member teams and the 100 mile for 2 person teams. On the 180 route there are 10 segments of varying topography and you are free to put any number of riders on course (see rules). The 100 mile route consists of the last 5 segments of the 180 mile route. The strategy and possibilities are almost endless!
One of the most epic rides you will ever experience. Brought by popular demand, the Uncut is the newest addition to the Sawtooth. Take on the entire 180 mile course and conquer one of the greatest! This mass start ride is reserved for only a select group. 2022 saw only 27% of riders finish. Are you up to the challenge? Looking for redemption? If you want bragging rights by making it to the finish, sign up early to claim a spot!
This is for the hardcore of the hardcore. Take on the 100 mile course on your own in time trial fashion. It's that simple, and that hard!
"Thanks for a great event. Super challenging course. Can't wait to do it again... The people were so awesome to my wife who was supporting me. She couldn't stop talking about all the amazing people that she met and supported her supporting me. Great culture. Great event. Thanks again."
"This ride is literally LOTOJA's big brother. There, I said it, no take-backs."
"It's the sort of event that weaves cyclists together. At the end of the day, there are at least 3 other people on the planet who have experienced the same rushes, challenges and euphoria that you will now attempt to communicate to your family (albeit unsuccessfully) for at least the next week. It's like being part of a secret club - suddenly you all have something in common that was so awesome and inspiring to be part of; you just know it will stay with you for a long time to come."
"It is one of my favorite days of the year! I just like hammering across the state with my good friends."
"The Sawtooth is like my favorite thing to do all year... Having teams of different ability levels on a level playing field is really cool."

The route from Boise to Sun Valley is one of the most scenic in the country, and you can take in every mile of it from your bike saddle. Given the roads we travel on, we need to keep everyone safe and the local residents happy. It is our goal to continue the event long into the future, and to do that, we need your help in following the rules.
The Sawtooth will provide four aid stations along the way, allowing riders without any additional support to complete the route.
In order to minimize time at aid stations and to ensure that everyone gets exactly what they want, Uncut Riders will be provided with two baskets to put whatever they want into. The first basket will be at Aid Stations 1 and 3, while the second basket will be at Aid Stations 2 and 4. We would recommend: 2 bottles with your favorite drink along with your favorite riding foods. If you leave bottles in the basket after aid stations 1 and 2, we'll fill them for you with water.
While additional support is not necessary, we realize that people often want their own support. There are a few extra rules for Uncut support:
