rules of the ride

All riders must have their bib number, or wrist bands to access the course. no persons will be permitted on the course unless with the appropriate wrist band or bib number.

All riders are required to wear an approved helmet and cannot remove it at any time while riding.

No support or follow vehicles are allowed. rest stops stations will be stocked and able to handle participant’s needs.

Riders must ALWAYS obey traffic laws and strictly obey any law enforcement persons or official ride personnel. In the interest of your own safety, you should always assume the same level of vigilance in riding your bike during the event that you would under normal circumstances.

When passing other riders, use common sense and pass on the left and let yourself be known when doing so. After you pass, resume riding as far right as safely possible. DO NOT PASS riders or vehicles on blind corners.

Public urination or exposure is, as always, a definite NO-NO. Anyone caught using anything other than a porta-head in the start or finish area or appropriate nature-break facility will be disqualified from the event.

You are responsible for your own mechanical needs during the event.
Utilize the aid stations and stock up with the necessary fluids and food you’ll need to get yourself to back the finish area.

Be prepared for extreme changes in the weather, this is florida. A light windbreaker at the very least is a good idea. Sunblock is also a must! 

Ride will take place rain, shine, sleet or snow.

Entry Refunds? There are no refunds.

Headphones/ear buds are NOT permitted during a ride.

Each rider is classified according to their age as of December 31st, the year of the event.

The responsibility of keeping on the designated course rests with the rider. A rider may not leave the designated course unless ordered to do so by public authorities or a ride official.

Shortcutting and/or cutting trail switchbacks or course is not permitted and may result in disqualification. A rider is required to stay on the designated route.
