3 beautiful rides; 3 start times
Our photographers requests that riders put their bibs on the front of their Jersey so they can capture the number. It makes it easier to search for their photos after the event.
Start no later than 8:00 a.m. We highly recommend you start at 6:30 a.m. Rest stops closures will be timed with this 8:00 a.m. push-off time taking into account a moderate pace. Slower riders should begin early! The lunch stop is at Old Felta Schoolhouse at mile 59 (see the routes page). SAG support closes at 5:00 p.m. Expo closes at 4:00 p.m. though meals will still be available to late riders who arrive by 5:00 p.m.
Metric Century: 8:00 a.m.
Family Ride: 9:00 a.m.
Parking is available at O’Reilly Media and along Highway 116 and Mill Station Road will be limited. Please be careful of no-parking areas and cross the road at the cross walk located at the corner of Mill Station Road and 116. We also encourage you to carpool. Please be mindful of neighboring homes and businesses and park at O’Reilly Media or on public streets.
Porta-potties will be available at the Expo and on route.
This is not a race!
Personal records are great, but please be safe and mindful of fellow riders and traffic.
The lunch stop will be at Old Felta Schoolhouse which is at mile 59 for the Century ride and mile 50 for the Metric ride (see the routes page).
All riders receive a post-ride meal. Don’t forget to have your meal tickets handy. Family and friends may purchase meals directly from our food vendors. Additional soda and water tickets may be purchased for $2.
Transfers will be allowed until June 1, 2014 with a $25 processing fee. We encourage transfers but please do not sell your registration for more than you bought it for – this is a charity ride after all! There are no refunds.
