Civil War Saddle Sore 2000 

Gettysburg National Military Park 
September 22nd through 24th, 2015  

Join the MTF LD riders for a Civil War SaddleSore 2000
on your way to Founder’s Feast!

Do you like to ride long distances? Are you a Civil War buff? We’ll offer 3 different options to satisfy your passions for both. For those not yet Iron Butt Association members, we’ll launch you on a straightforward 48 hour SS2K from Gettysburg, PA to Vicksburg, MS, and back.

If you have the IBA prerequisites, you’ll have 2 additional options – you can ride the Gettysburg to Vicksburg route in 36 hours for the first-ever MTF offering of an SS2K GOLD, or you can take the more scenic but definitely more challenging 2K loop that will guide you across 9 States to 6 National Park Service Civil War sites.
