Snacks will be provided en route at the Check Points (see Check Point opening schedule). Registration Fees include snacks and drinks at the Check Points. The Check Points correspond with the ride end points. Check Points are also available for your return trip.
Ham Radio operators will be at each of the check points to note the individual rider arrival and departure. Please share your Rider Number with the volunteer Ham Radio operators as you pass the Check Point whether you stop or not. This allows us to be sure each rider is monitored throughout the Tour since the area is remote.
The first Check Point is at Daphne Grove (16 miles out from Powers). Those riding the Daphne Grove ride will return to Powers after checking in and refueling. Those continuing on longer rides will check in and refuel at Daphne Grove and then continue on to the other Check Points at Eden Valley (30. 5 miles out), Arrastra Saddle (36.5 miles out), and at the half-way point of the Cruiser Loop (50 miles out).
Those riding to Agness Pass will have Check Points at Daphne Grove (16 miles out) and at the top of Agness Pass (21 miles out).
SAG (Support and Gear) vehicles with water will be monitoring the routes to provide hydration and assistance.
