PERSONAL SAG VEHICLES:
Personal SAG vehicles are NOT allowed on Forest Service Roads. Parking is only allowed in designated parking areas along the course route. A USDA Forest Service Adventure Pass is required for some of areas. We suggest 75/100k riders have personal SAG or family meet them at Seven Oaks Campsite Aid Station where we have space under the trees and next to the stream. Restaurant/market on-site for family. Plenty of parking.
Riders must check in on the 75/100k course. There will be an official volunteer with a clipboard at each Aid Station and road crossing to ensure that no one gets lost, as well as to report your progress back to the event staff at the Start/Finish. The number plate is very important, so please remember the number and yell it out as your ride past a check point if you choose not to stop.

All courses will close at 5:00 pm. Any rider who has not passed through Grandview Aid Station by 3:00 pm will be directed down 1E01 to complete the course. The emergency contact for riders who have not returned by 5:00 pm may be notified that the rider has chosen to progress on his/her own.
