Yes, there will be aid stations along the courses stocked with food, water, and first aid kits. We will also have SAG drivers and an ambulance available. Not all volunteers have experience with bike repair but will work to get you assistance. Cell service may also be sporadic so please come prepared. If you need special chains, tubes etc. be sure to carry them with you.
What type of bike can I bring?
A road bike is the best option. You can also ride a touring bike, mountain bike, or single speed (with two brakes). A triathlon bike is fine as long as you keep your hands on the brake lever while riding in a group. Bike trailers and bike seats are not allowed for safety reasons.
