Volunteers needed for LOTOJA bike race

JACKSON, Wyo. (KIFI/KIDK) - The LOTOJA Bike Race, which takes riders on a 205-mile ride from Logan, Utah and finishes at Teton Village, will pass through Jackson this Saturday, September 9.

Jackson Hole Community Pathways is seeking volunteers to help with pathways traffic management for 2-3 hour shifts starting Saturday afternoon until approximately 9:00 p.m. Saturday evening.

This year’s route is unchanged from last year, with a 3-mile segment of the race taking place on the Teton County Pathway system. As in years past, the riders will approach Jackson from the south on Highway 89 from Hoback Junction, then will turn left onto South Park Loop and head north past Melody Ranch and 3 Creek Ranch. Eventually, the riders will be routed onto the pathway at the end of Tribal Trail Road, and will continue on the pathway along WY22 and across the Snake River Pathway Bridge before being routed back on to the road on Highway 390 to Teton Village.

The pathway will remain open to public use throughout the day, but pathway users are cautioned to be aware of cyclists and yield to racers.

Signs and course markings will be in place by 2:00 PM Saturday to alert pathway users and provide direction for event participants. Course marshals will be positioned at critical junctions on the pathways between 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM to help manage pathway and race traffic. The fastest riders are expected to arrive in Jackson as early as  2:00 PM, and there will be riders on the course throughout the rest of the day.

Contact Brian Schilling at (307) 690-9896 or bschilling@tetonwyo.org to volunteer.
