-       Riders are allowed one bag that the support team will transport for them to each rest station along the ride.
-       At each rest station there will be basic rider and bike support items, but each rider is largely responsible for their own support items.
-       At all times safety is the primary priority and all riders are expect to ride in a safe fashion and respect all the rules of riding on an open road that will not have any official traffic control along the route.  Furthermore, all riders participating in this event need to ensure they themselves are safe riders and are confident to participate in an endurance event of this duration.
-       All riders participating in this event must discuss their prior road riding experience with the event coordinator to ensure they choosing the correct distance that matches their riding experience.

=================================================================
BIKES:

-       For safety of the event there are some basic bike and rider criteria that must be met:

o   No fixed gear or single speed bikes.  No recumbents.  No mountain bikes or bikes with a flat handle bar. Basically you can ride a road or triathlon bike.
o   Each rider must carry with them a spare tube and way of inflating the tube (CO2/pump) and if the rider is using non-clincher rims they must carry a spare tire and be able to change it confidently on their own.
o   Each rider must ride with some way of carrying liquids on their bike or body (water bottles/camelback).
o   All riders must be prepared to ride in extreme conditions and carry adequate attire with them as the conditions dictate.

=================================================================
REST STOPS:
