WHAT TO EXPECT
Water and food stations as well as restrooms are stationed along the road approximately 10-15 miles apart. All rest stops will be stocked with water, a carbohydrate replacement drink, fruit, and snack foods. All participants are highly encouraged to have a water bottle, preferably two, on their bike as it can be quite hot in early September.
Bike mechanics are available at the ride start location for last minute adjustments, but participants are responsible for arriving with a safe and maintained bicycle. SAG support is available on the course to assist with mechanicals. The designated turnaround points for each distance will be well marked and supported with race volunteers. Safety is of primary importance during the event. Even though there is very little traffic on Natchez Trace Parkway, cyclists should ride single file whenever possible and always stay on the right side of the road. The event is held rain or shine. ANSI or SNELL approved bicycle helmets are required for all participants.
All riders will be treated to a complimentary lunch upon completion of their ride.
