I'm putting together all my last minute touches on the ride during the next two days, so this will likely be my last post prior to the event. If you have a specific question for me, either contact me on the contact page or post a comment and I'll get back to you asap.
The biggest thing you need to remember for this ride is that "This ride is a completely self-supported ride. Please come prepared." Please don't have friend following you and taking up space on the road that could make the roads unsafe for other riders. If you know you won't finish, call your pit crew for a ride, or have them meet you at the checkpoint at Wishful Acres Brewery.
-If you are camping out the night before please park along the field on the east side of the property so you don't have to repark your car in the morning. If you choose to sleep in the barn for some reason, please know I will be there around 6:30 Sunday morning and I might wake you up while setting some things up for the day. Just letting you know.
-Cue cards will come in a plastic baggie. The cues are not printed in waterproof ink, so don't get them wet. Trust your cue cards and not necessarily the person in front of you.
-There will be some unmarked corners. Those corners will be marked with a pink flag on a stake that alerts you that you should be turning the direction indicated on your cue sheet. There will be a couple of turns that will actually have an arrow because they are a bit confusing. Just use common sense with these markers, I promise it won't be confusing at all.
-Please ride safe. The roads will be quiet on a Sunday morning, but please still obey road signs. Perhaps the biggest thing I need to remind riders of is to always "Ride Right" when cresting a hill. A head on collision with a car is the last thing you want to happen at an event like this (or any time).
-Please make sure you sign in inside the barn to let us know you are there. Everyone needs to sign an event waiver, and after doing so you will receive your cue cards.
-And lastly, I continue to get postcards telling me what size shirt the person wears. If you read the registration page, it says specifically that your postcard had to be received by March 31st to get a t-shirt. I did not order extra shirts, so please don't expect one if you registered after that date. There may be some extra if some of those people are no-shows, but that is the only way you will be getting one. Sorry.
That's all I have. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
