Making it easy for riders to find their way!

Five Groups will be assembled on Friday before the event to ride the course with backpacks of signs and ribbon to mark the course for riders (maps/GPS, ribbons, and signs will be provided). Bring backpacks to carry equipment. We will provide you with specific instructions so all trails are marked in the same fashion. Marking will occur on Friday before the event (times TBD).
