This super randonnée starts and finishes in Andong, one of Korea’s most historic and culturally rich cities. It is designed to be a challenging adventure which affords riders access to some of the most remote and breathtaking roads in North Gyeongsang Province. The course exits the city in a northeast direction following the Nakdong River and then passes through the city of Yeongyang before heading south in the direction of Cheongsong. The first 250K is filled with numerous medium-sized passes which provide a steady warm-up for the larger climbs to come. After passing through the southern section of Juwangsan National Park, the course descends to the east coast giving riders a short seaside cruise and brief break from the mountains. Shortly thereafter the course brings riders back inland and gains nearly 800 meters as it uses a series of steep exposed concrete ramps to access the giant wind farm atop magnificent Maengdongsan. The route then proceeds on quiet roads skirting the Chilbosan Natural Recreation Forest where riders should be prepared to tackle a short gravel section as they push north and later climb gradually though a calm forest to the top of Ilwolsan, the highest point of the ride. The course then pushes west through the city of Yeongju and Sobaeksan National Park before turning back toward the finish. The rider must then navigate a series of rigorous climbs before finally tackling the final climb of the ride, the infamous and formidable Hakgasan. SR Bald Eagle is a demanding undertaking featuring some of the finest roads and most serene surroundings South Korea has to offer. It will truly test the legs and recharge the soul.
