PDF copy of the route sheet is attached, print your own copy, I will only have a few at the start.


There are several options to shorten the ride by 5-10 miles and cut some climbing off the route. There will be regroups about every 5 miles and bathrooms/water about every 10 miles.


Extreme temperatures, construction or the whim of the ride leader may modify the route. Rain cancels, check, email or call me.
