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 of course, 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 bike ride. You should also bring your cell phone, charge it, and carry it with you, or just ride with someone who has a phone. There are some areas on our routes where phone service may be spotty. We also recommend you carry emergency food just in case.
SAG Number and Pick Up Service- You may call our SAG phone number (502-319-0765) 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 and the SAG workload, you may be transported to the nearest rest stop or back to the Park.
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 10-20 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 seven rest stops along the way, including an enhanced stop at the Cane Ridge location – more substantial fare to get you through the second half of your ride. The other longer length route (75 miles) will also have enhanced food items at the Paris rest stop location. And of course, all routes will enjoy ice cream treats at their last rest stop, which this year is located on a beautiful horse farm!
On Sunday, we will again offer four routes, including our popular 74 mile route for those who want a good, long ride prior to heading home! There will be three 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 1,700 participants – but we promise we will have what you need to get you comfortably through the day.
