*You are completely responsible for yourself during this ride. I will not be coming to pick you up if you need assistance.
*Registration is from 7-7:45 Saturday morning.
*Waivers must be turned in at the registration check-in on the morning of the ride. Cue cards will not be given out until you sign an event waiver.
*Cue cards for the first 70 miles will be handed out at registration. They are not waterproof, nor are they printed with waterproof ink, but they will come in a zip-loc baggy.
*The ride will start promptly at 8:00.
*Cue cards for the second 70 miles will be issued at the checkpoint that riders are required to stop and check in at.
*Cue card information is the same as in the past. Please check out the April 15, 2018 post for information about what a cue card for this event looks like.
*Riders must reach the 70 mile checkpoint by 2:30. My checkpoint crew will be leaving their post at 2:30. If you don't reach the checkpoint on time you will DNF and probably want to find a ride home.
*There is a gas station with sandwiches, water, snacks, etc. for you to take advantage of across the street from the check point. This is the only point on the course where you will go through a town and have direct access to food and water.
*There will be no food and water provided at the checkpoint. Come prepared!
*The second half of the ride is also 70 miles. If you feel you don't have the legs to make it back, this would be a place to call your support crew to come and get you.
*Riders should come prepared with headlights and taillights. There is a strong chance that you might finish at dusk or in the dark.
*Check in at the "Finish" tent when arriving back at the start/finish area. *The first 50 finishers will receive an official finishers glass.
*Riders must finish before 10 pm to be considered an official finisher. The "Finish" tent will be packing up and closing at this time.
For those interested in camping, I'm still waiting to hear back from a local campground about whether or not they will be open yet on the weekend of April 27th. I'll post something as soon as I find out.
T-shirts are still likely going to happen, but only one person has expressed interest so far. So we'll see how that goes. They might be available for $10, or they might be free? We'll just see what happens.
If you have any questions, please contact me directly. I'm looking forward to another great Grumpy Grind two weeks from now!
