I am doing the Deerfield Dirt Road Randonee this weekend.
I am a veteran of long distance MTB races, with well marked courses and support, but have a few questions about cue sheets, etc. and
1. Would it be advantageous to have a mileage computer on the bike or could I manage without it. I am guessing I should have one because the cue sheets will be in miles or kilometers.
2. Is there real food at the feed stations ? I plan on bringing enough shot bloks, gu's, etc but how about pb&j's (my stomach can't take the milk chug of randonee lore), salty stuff.
3. if anyone has done this ride before would you suggest I ride 35mm knobbies or 38mm semislicks
Thanks for your help and if you are doing the ride I'll see you up there
