All riders receiving awards are required to be present for the podium, and be in proper podium attire (clean cycling kit). In theme based races which involve costumes, your sponsor jersey is still required. Failure to do so can result in loss of prize or award

Bike Requirements

There will not be any restrictions in regards to type of bike or tire size for Beginner and Intermediate races. 

Elite races will be subject to UCI rules when it comes to bikes and tire size. This is to help prepare our Elite racers for Nationals and other UCI races.

Race Course Etiquette

Riders are not permitted to ride on courses prior to race day, unless special permission is allowed. The course may also be subject to modification or cancellation due to heavy rain.

It is also suggested that all racers allow extra time post-race to assist organizer in helping to clean-up and restore the race site.
