For the first time in years, maybe decades, Wednesday Night Worlds has added a new route- Owl Canyon Long Loop.  This new route is just as safe as the Classic (with the exception of crossing 287) but adds some series climbing at the end and keeps riders closer to town for the entire ride.  The distance and time are also nearly identical to the Classic but the ride finish is closer to the South end of town.  Ride organizers were also discussing adding the dirt road at the top of the Cement Plant Climb or riding 287 for a short distance so that the Dairy Farm Loop could be added. There are obvious concerns with both options. 

There are now three WNW routes with a few more to come. 

The Classic

The Nunn Loop

The Owl Canyon-Long Loop

The forth loop, the Owl Canyon Short Loop is only used on days with limited daylight.
