Notes:
This is a great prep ride for the GT. Road rides of this difficulty spread out the riders and make regrouping of the whole group unmanageable. We will form into subgroups at the start and keep the coordinator and our riding buddies informed, one way or another, about deviations from the planned route and schedule. Subgroups will set their own pace and regroup points.
- Most club rides include city streets, secondary roads and or major highways. The club encourages members to follow the rules of the road at all times while participating in EVCC events.
- Riders must be aware that cycling, while enjoyable and great exercise, carries some risks including injury and death. Riders must be alert for hazardous conditions/situations throughout the course of a ride. If at any time a rider thinks a ride is unsafe, or feels unsafe, the rider should quit the ride.
- Details of this event are subject to change at any point in time, with or without warning.
