Plenty of parking.

CHECK POINTS:
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.

TIME LIMITS/CUT-OFF TIMES:
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.
