Preparation:
All bikers are required to bring their own bike and bring a bike helmet to wear throughout the ride. Upon signing into the ride at initial registration at Young Circle or one of the rest stops, each biker will be provided with a T-shirt to wear throughout the ride. Please dress appropriately for the weather and the sporting activity. Please examine the schedule and route to be on time and decide the best starting point for you. Bikers can drop in and out of the ride between the two stops of their choosing. Only sponsored bikers are guaranteed a car ride back to their point of entry in the ride. All other bikers have to make personal arrangements to get back to their starting point as this is a one way ride that does not loop back.

Notes:
Bikers will be provided with drinks throughout the ride to stay hydrated and with power snacks at each rest-stop. Support vehicles and volunteers will be accessible all the way through. If at any point a biker gets tired they will have access to sit it out in a support vehicle until the next rest stop. This ride is not a race we anticipate maintaining a mild pace between 10 and 12 mi per hour. Please warm up and prepare your body for an endurance ride in the days preceding the ride. Children under 15 years of age must have parental supervision throughout the ride.  Closing ceremony is scheduled at the last stop to thank and honor all the bikers and supporters.
