There will be turns on the course that do not have any signage. Any of these turns that are unmarked will be labeled as such on your cue sheets. Any turn that is unmarked that migh be confusing will be marked with a pink flag as show in in the picture. There about about 6 of these on the course (hopefully they will still be there if farm equipment and hooligans don't run them over). If the turn is unmarked, but the direction will be obvious, such as when a road T's, there will be no pink flag. As mentioned in a prior post. Use common sense when reading your cues.
** Don't take unnecessary risks going fast downhill on loose gravel. (use rear brake, not front)
** Never ride more than two abreast.
** Give each other space so you can see the potholes, washouts, etc.
** Always ride right, especially when cresting a hill.
** Obey road signage, especially stop signs at blind intersections or when crossing a paved road.
** Bring plenty of food and water.
** There are no stops along the 80 mile course for food or water provisions.
** Trust your cues and common sense, not necessarily the choices of the person ahead of you.
** Be friends with your fellow riders and help with flats and other mechanical. It's good karma.
Okay, I'm done with my mothering rant. Tomorrow should be a great day for a bike ride! Hope to see you there!
