2021 DURING COVID: This year we will have a “rolling” start and ask all riders to register for a wave time beginning at 7:30am (and no later than 10:30am) to assist with capacity management to ensure social distancing at the start, lunch stop and finish line and not exceed state capacity limits. Masks are not required while riding, however we do ask that all riders wear their masks when you are not riding or eating/drinking at lunch if you are not more than 6′ from others. Help us keep this event FUN & SAFE!
Note: All Riders will receive an email asking them to pick a wave time and RSVP for the Friday Night party/gathering.
NON-COVID ANSWER: There is not an organized group start. Riders may start at their leisure, but no later than 10:30 am. We suggest starting early (7:30 am to 9:00 am) if you’ve never ridden the course before or if you aren’t in as good of shape as you’d like to be in. It takes the average rider about 6 to 7 hours of riding time, not including stops.
