  • if you bring friends along, ensure they sign the insurance waiver.  ride-alongs are permitted during the morning and afternoon (timed, competitive) events. 

Suggestions

  • top off oil and consider bumping tire pressures a bit. Suggest at last a half tank of gas, though the nearest station is only about 10 minutes away.
  • fly repellent & sun block are a good thing to bring along
  • if you can help out cleaning up the course after the event, it's much appreciated!
