Be on the lookout for fun prizes and incentives you can earn along the way! 

*RIDERS 16 and under are only required to raise a minimum of $100 to participate in the event.

RUNNERS are not required to reach the fundraising minimum to participate, but incentives will apply for any participant that raises $250 or more!

Check-In and Start Times

9:00 AM- 62 Mile Ride Start

9:30 AM- 25 Mile Ride Start

On the Route

When you check-in, you will get cue sheets for the ride.  The route will be marked, but you are responsible for navigating the route.  Please pay attention to the roads, directions, and cue sheets. Volunteer SAG wagons will be patrolling the route.  If you need assistance, give the standard "thumbs down" signal to indicate you need support.  Strollers are permitted on the 5K route.

Please note: SAG wagons are intended to provide support for mechanical problems, or injury.  They are not shuttles to get up a hill or on to the next stop.  Please be prepared to complete the route you begin.  If there is an emergency, call 911.  If you're not sure if you should call 911... CALL 911.  For other issues or concerns, please call the number on the cue sheet.

 

Route Markings

The route will be marked on the pavement with "Dan Henry Marks". These marks will be at all the intersections, turns or tricky navigation sites. Wherever possible, we will augment these marks with other signage and if possible, a volunteer to point the way. However, the Dan Henry Marks are not meant to replace you being responsible to pay attention and follow the cue sheets for the route.

The points where Metric Century and 25 mile routes intersect or diverge will be well marked, but please pay attention and follow our cue sheets.

 

Mechanical Support

There will be Bike Mechanics at the Starting Line and occasionally at a rest stop. Our volunteer mechanics can make simple adjustments, quick bike checks and fix flats. If your bike needs more serious work, the mechanic may be able to help you. Why not take advantage of pre-event bicycle inspections being offered by our Bike Shop Sponsors?

Please note: If the bike mechanics have to make significant repairs or provide parts to get your bike functioning, you are responsible for any labor or parts changes. Please have cash available or be prepared to make arrangements for payment.

 

Weather Cancellation Policy

This is a Rain or Shine event. No Refunds or Transfers.

The safety of our participants and volunteers is our most important concern and if any of the threatening weather conditions are present on the day of the event (tornado warning, tornado watch, thunderstorm, heavy rain or a hurricane decides to visit), the event may be delayed or canceled.

When weather conditions or other physical conditions present a danger to participants, such conditions fall under the label "acts of mother nature," it will not result in refunding of any event entry fees or future event credits, since funds were already spent in preparation for your event day.

Don’t forget to thank the volunteers and to scope out each stop.  Thanks to all the great volunteers!
