100K route will be marked but we still recommend GPS backup for navigation purposes.

These routes are not appropriate for traditional "road bikes". Gravel/Adventure bikes, cyclocross and hardtail mountain bikes are ideal. Hybrids without fenders will work for the shorter routes as well. Helmets are required and rear lights are highly recommended for safety purposes. There are short stretches on high speed Farm to Market roads but the vast majority of the routes are on nearly deserted county roads.
The course is marked but this should still be considered a self supported event without SAG vehicles. GPS backup is highly suggested. Riders can receive support at specified points along the route but will be disqualified if they receive on course support beyond other riders outside of those points.
For safety and insurance purposes all riders must wear a helmet and operate their bicycles under their own power. No motorized assistance is allowed.
