2019 INFORMATION COMING SOON!
Want to navigate/track your ride using GPS on your smartphone? We’ve got you covered. However, even if you’ve got the route on your phone, you should not begin riding until your appointed start time and you should not rely solely on your phone. Here’s why: If you leave early, you’ll arrive at rest areas before they’ve had a chance to set up. Do not ignore the pink arrows, blue signs, or the directions on your cue sheet because there’s always a slight chance that we’ll have to change the route in the next few days.
