All the rest stocks are stocked with snacks, water and Gatorade.
The 2016 routes are available from RWGPS now. There will be a minor change due to the relocation of a rest stop, but the 2017 routes will be up before the ride. Our volunteers are doing route check rides now to confirm any changes or detours. Cue sheets will be available the day of the ride as well.
The ride usually draws between 500 and 1000 riders. Day of registration is accepted so the number fluctuates a bit based on the weather.
The roads are not closed for riders, so this is a free start, ride at your own pace event. Registration and sign in is open from 7am to noon. All support services and the facilities at the college close at 6pm.
