*This is a completely self supported ride. Enough said. I'm not coming to get you. Normally my volunteers have the event covered and I get to ride, so I would be of no help anyways.
*You can camp out at the farm the night before if you'd like. Just be respectful of the farmer and his property. Usually there is a bonfire going and people have a good time camping out.
*RV's are welcome too, though I'm not sure there are any outlets available for keeping your electrical going.
*All riders must check in inside the barn for registration. This is where all riders must sign an event waiver, receive cue cards and a souvenir race bib.
*Ride starts promptly at 9:00. We won't wait for you.
*Riders must wear a helmet. If you don't bring any supplies for repairs or an odometer for mileage... well that's just silly. Come prepared.
*All riders must check in at the 47 mile checkpoint. Total mileage is 85.75 miles, so don't back track the course to get home or it will take you longer.
*The checkpoint is at Wishful Acres Brewery. If you only plan to go halfway, it's a great place to stop and have a delicious beverage. Just make sure to arrange for a ride home.
*There will be free beverages at the finish... soda, lemonade, water and cerveza.
*If it is rainy or chilly out, the farmer usually has some heaters going in the barn, but dress accordingly just in case.
*If you made the cut-off for early registration, I'll have a t-shirt waiting for you. You'll get the size you ordered, no exchanges. There may be some extra available for sale for $10 for those who didn't register early.
*The first 75 finishers will receive a finishers mug.
My goal is to organize an event that has good food, good swag, great riding, and great participants. The concept is very grass roots like. It is a free event, but it really runs off of donations by those who value the event and the vibe it offers. If you have already committed to come, I hope to see you in two weeks. If you're undecided, just know you'll be missing out if you don't. Now if we can just get some sunny skies and 70 degree weather!
