There are aid stations approximately each 7-12 miles staffed by volunteers offering bananas, oranges and water. Each will have port-o-pots. Some stations will serve raisins (or other fruit item), cookies and/or pretzels. The Aid Station volunteers may provide other food items. Please be courteous to them – they are there to help you.
Aid stations along the route close according to a schedule that will allow cyclists to finish by 4:00pm. If you are riding a pace that will NOT allow you to finish by 4:00pm the aid stations may close before you get there and other route support will be in front of you. Please be prepared.
If you have special dietary restrictions or need more nutrition, please bring your own or plan to stop at a store along the way.
Water is the only beverage served to cyclists. Remember to drink BEFORE you are thirsty. Bring ELECTROLYTE REPLACEMENTS with you to help reduce cramps and muscle spasms. Please test electrolytes on a training ride before the event. For safety reasons, cyclists stopping at aid stations MUST move OFF THE ROAD to avoid oncoming riders and vehicles.
