100 Mile Route - There is 1 mini water station and 5 full service aid stations - though at as fully stocked during this COVID year. The aid stations high spirits will keep you rolling and having fun all day. When stopping at a station please do not drop your bike in the road, either keep it between your legs or walk it to the side of the road and place it clear from harms way.
We will have cut-offs at Aid Station 4, 5, and 6 - they will be announced at the riders meeting as they will be partially based on forecasted weather.
We are in a tough spot with spectators - we can't have them. But we need some volunteers. So if you have family that "MUST ATTEND" we can put them to use as a volunteer. We have some great volunteer spots that could use their help. THIS YEAR MORE THEN EVER non racers MUST volunteer. Volunteers are a great aspect to this event as well as all of our other events, so please help out.
