  • We will not have checkpoints throughout the day or sweep riders to keep track of you.
  • We may provide “outriders” to help you if you need a shortcut to the finish or have questions along the way, but they should NOT be considered “sweep” riders:

Q: Why do these rides cost what they do?

  • There is no economy of scale.
  • But since there will not be 200 riders you are guaranteed a more comfortable environment.
  • Liability Insurance, art, website, web hosting, accounting, book-keeping, facility rentals, printing…
  • Meals included with the rides, tents and trailers and our Club Members time, fuel, tires and lodging all add to the cost.
