As of Sunday the course was in great shape. With a little bit of rain today helping to keep the dust down, the roads should continue to be in great shape. On the 50 mile route you will find some mud on the class 4 road sections, but the 20 mile route will be nice and dry. The weather is shaping up to be a beautiful sunny day with a little chill in the morning, but rapidly climbing up into the high 70’s.
There will be 1 Aid Station, located at the north end of Dayton Hill Rd. This puts it conveniently at mile 24.5 and 36.5. There will be water, energy snacks, apples, bike tools, and more!
The course will be marked with Yellow directional signs, as well as White pavement markings. There will be volunteers to direct you at some intersections.
If you have any issues while on course, call 802-468-7717
If there is a medical emergency please call 911 first.

See you Saturday!
