Who are the YAMS?
Any YAMBA member (and guests) who attempts this endurance ride. The
ride is long and includes some of the most challenging trails the
York County Parks has to offer. It is a fun group ride and we will
try not to leave anyone behind. However, there will be a time cut-off
early in the ride. Actual time cut-off is yet to be determined, but
you should be able to ride the "Goat Trail", "Airplane Hill", and
back to the boat launch in 2 hours without killing yourself. Riders
failing to meet the time cut-off are expected to abandon their flee,
but are always welcome to try again next year. If you participate,
strive to finish the ride in its entirety. You will become a "Spud"
and receive a collectable pin. Due to its difficulty, beginners
should not participate. All riders will be weighed (including bike
and all gear) prior to the start. The heaviest rider will be required
to wear the "Sweet Potato" jersey.

This crazy idea is to aid in the congregation of bike riders who like
long rides. This is NOT A RACE! However, we do not discourage fast
YAMBA does not intend to portray this ride as a formal event. You are
to finish if you participate. Consider the ride as if you were riding
with friends. You and only you are responsible for your safety. The
route is very technical and dangerous. It is not for beginners. You
will also be on public roads with traffic. You are responsible for
riding safely. You may be injured or die. No emergency support is
provided. You may not hold anyone else responsible for your actions,
conduct, safety and happiness. Any questions contact the "Chief
Advisor to the Sweet Potato" Paul Yeager @ 717 580 7082.
