Shared Responsibility - We will do our best to support you when you’re out there riding with well-stocked rest stops and roving SAG vehicles, but we can’t be everywhere at once. You should still come prepared with the tools you need to fix a flat or do your own minor repairs, as you would on any long distance ride. You should also bring your cell phone and carry it with you or ride with someone who has a phone. There are some areas on our routes where phone service may be spotty. We recommend you carry emergency food just in case.
SAG Number and Pick Up Service - We will have a phone number you can call if you need to be picked up, but unless your timing is impeccable it may take us a bit of time to get a vehicle to you. Depending on the situation, you may be transported to the nearest rest stop or back to headquarters.
Mechanical Support - We will have bike mechanics available and at selected rest stops both days. They will have the tools and equipment to make basic repairs, but will not be able to do complicated or lengthy repairs. Please make sure to have your bike checked out and in good working order before you head to Georgetown. Mechanics will not charge for labor or minor adjustments and repairs, however you may be asked to pay for any parts or supplies used by the mechanics in repairing your bike. Please make sure you have money with you just in case.
Rest Stops - Rest stops will be provided on both Saturday and Sunday approximately every 15 miles. Our food and rest stops team has carefully selected food items and drinks that will nourish and sustain you so that you can finish your ride in good form. Riders on our Century route will have an enhanced rest stop at the Cane Ridge location – more substantial fare to get you through the second half of your ride. The medium length routes (49 and 74) will also have enhanced food items at the Paris rest stop location. And of course, all routes will enjoy our popular ice cream floats at their last rest stop, which this year is located on a beautiful horse farm!
On Sunday, we’ve continued to offer four routes, and our popular 75 mile route for those who want a good, long ride prior to heading home! There will be four rest stops operating on Sunday with a broad selection of items.
And no, we won’t have every single thing you want at every rest stop – that would be impossible with over 2,500 participants – but we promise we will have what you need to get you comfortably through the day.
