On Day 3, there is an option to ride up the Snake River and add 46 miles to the ride. That would mean eating lunch at the lunch stop very early in the ride, or fairly late (mile 85). Does anyone know what time lunch will be served till on Day 3?

Map shows lunch at each end of the option. So maybe you can choose!

There is a rest stop at the dam (turn around location). Its possible they put a lunch stop there for those who choose the option. There will be time to find out prior to Day 3. Listen to the announcement at the main stage daily for details on the next days ride.

FWIW, the handbook states lunch is served from 9:30 - 2:00 daily. Obviously, ask at rider services if the Day 3 lunch will be extended. Start early (6:30) and you have 7.5 hours to make it to the dam and back to lunch.

The lunch site is near the boarder crossing, not at the dam. The option begins and ends at lunch. You can choose to eat before making the loop or after. There will be a rest stop equipped with food at the halfway point.

In the past we have taken the lunch at the start and carried it in to the dam. This assumes you have room in your pockets or have something to carry the sandwich. It works out better than taking a chance that you will get back in time for food!
