Changing Routes and Riders: If you decide to do a longer or shorter route than the one you registered for, just let us know when you check-in or at the next rest stop during your ride. We will provide you with the correct map & a sticker to match the new color of your new course markings.
On-Site registration will be available from 5:30 to 8:45 AM. Register at one of our laptops or complete the registration the registration form near the on-site registration table. Then take your confirmation or form to the table for on-site registration. The worker will accept your payment (cash, check, or debit/credit card) and you will be given your rider packet.
Riders will self-stage by route and speed. You will self-seed by average speed in rider staging and be moved in groups of 20 to the start line. It is required by law that we ride no more than 2 abreast. To help ensure this is more likely to happen we start riders 2 abreast in groups of 20. Faster riders start first so there is less likely to be an incident trying to pass.
Route maps, wristbands, and cue sheets are color coded for the six courses. Roads along the route will have colored arrows on them. PINK markings are for all routes. If you see PINK you are going the right way! Blue is the 5 or 17 mile courses, yellow is the 35 mile course, orange is the 54 mile course, green is the 67 mile course, white is the 104 mile course, and red is the 126 mile course.
We have updated the route to avoid crossing the busiest part of South Boulevard. You will be routed through a service road to a much safer crossing and pleasant ride out of town. Please use caution in this area. While it is safer, the pavement is not the best. Slow down for the few minutes it takes to get through the parking lot. It is not a high traffic area so you will be able to safely navigate the service road.
