AID STATIONS/PICK-UP POINTS/EMERGENCY CONTACTS

You will be given a more detailed sheet of aid station locations, pick-up points, and emergency contact names/numbers at the start of your ride. You will also receive a wristband that lets our volunteers at the campground know you are a paid rider and need a meal ticket! Yum!

While this is a supported ride, the terrain and trail can be tough on both bike and body so plan accordingly. It’s always better to have too much rather than not enough in the way of water, spares and supplies.

SWEEP & SAG RIDERS

Support riders will depart at the end of each group, these sweeps will have spare tubes and tire pumps, if you have a breakdown hang tight for rider support.
