POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Events Where Rest Stops DO NOT HAVE an Opening or Closing Time
When a rest stop does not have a specific opening or closing time, but remains
open until our participants come through, it is extremely critical to stop
only at our supported rest stops in order for our logistics to run smoothly.
You may not stop at an unsupported
location such as a restaurant or bar on the route for an unreasonable
period of time solely because the rest stops will remain open
until all participants come
through to ensure that our
faith "No Man Left Behind" policy
will not be abused.
policy does not apply in instances of stopping for a brief period of time
such as resting or catching your breath after a challenging ride.
Events Where Rest Stops DO HAVE an Opening
and Closing Times
When rest stops do have a specific opening
or closing time,
you may stop at an unsupported location on the
route for lunch. However, we only recommend stopping
if you're absolutely positive that doing so will
with your ability to depart
the rest stops by their closing times.
For safety reasons, all riders
must depart each rest stop by the posted closing time.

Stopping at Bars to Drink Alcohol
Stopping at bars to drink alcohol is not only
unnecessary, but extremely dangerous to yourself and
other participants. The consumption of alcohol will
never be tolerated while riding.
If alcohol is consumed on the
road, we will deny you all event services from that
forward, and you will be completely on your own. Absolutely
If you want an alcoholic beverage, please wait until
after you've safely completed the ride. At the end of
the day most everyone will want to enjoy a
cold beer or
two - staff
and participants alike!
