All riders receive a map and cue sheet. GPS data files, for cycle computers, may be downloaded for each individual route on this page. Routes will be marked with road markings with turn directions approximately 25 feet before each turn.
A limited number of printed cue sheets will be available at the registration table. To keep cost at a minimum we would encourage you to print out a copy from the website before arriving or download the GPS files, to your cycling computer, for your route from the route pages.
Helmets Are Mandatory!
Helmets should be ANSI, SNELL or CSPC approved, and must be brought to the registration desk. Cycling safety and strict adherence to all cycling rules of the road and traffic laws is imperative. Riding two, three and four abreast is a violation of traffic laws and safe riding practices. Not only does this put you at risk but events like this will not be allowed by the towns if it continues. Be safe – be considerate.
