Yes, your wrist band and bike number give you access to aid stations, food, drink and SAG support. It also gives you access to the post ride party, meal and drinks after the event.

Will there be enough food at the rest stops or do I need to bring my own?

The rest stops are approximately 20 miles apart and will be fully stocked including a variety of fruit, bagels, muffins, bars, water and an energy drink. There will be a light lunch on the longer course.

What type of clothing should I bring?

Expect it to be warm and sunny in the lower elevations, but be prepared for a possible afternoon shower which could include snow or sleet so it is wise to carry a rain jacket and/or leg and arm warmers. Expect sun – so wear sunscreen! This is Colorado and we have little control over what Ma Nature feels like throwing you.

What if I have a breakdown on the road?

Mechanical support will be available at several rest stops and SAG support along the route. They will get to you as soon as possible, but come prepared to at least be able to fix a flat. Those with serious mechanical difficulties will be transported to a rest stop.
