Cycling FAQs

They are not. As this is not a closed course, we don’t want to encourage you to take safety risks in an effort to have a faster time!

These start times help us better plan and provide support for you at the SAG locations along the route. They also allow you the opportunity to find other cyclists who ride at your pace to enhance your experience and safety. We will provide a lead car for the first several miles of each distance (except for 5 miles) at the suggested start time (for the reasons listed above).

We are helmet advocates – so yes! Cyclists must wear a bike helmet!

This is a family friendly event, these types of items are definitely allowed!

We will provide you the following:
Printed route map based on your mileage (you can take multiple if you haven’t committed to a certain mileage yet).
Color coded, connect-the-dots, directional markings on the road. Each route has its own specific color and matches the color of your emergency contact wristband!
Turn-by-turn navigation for your route. Join our Club on Ride with GPS! 

All finishers will recieve an award
