This very important message is for those that have separation anxiety issues with daylight as the dark of night slices away at the daylight while riding the Soggy Bottom. A "Ghost Rider" may accompany a rider only from Devils Pass to Hope. This rider is a spiritual aid and nothing more. The "ghost rider" may only provide verbal support, no tools, no hydration, food, or tubes, ect. This Ghost Rider will be required to ride behind the Sog Bot rider, pacing a rider is not allowed. The Sog Bot rider must also carry all the items to complete the route. This concept is a test for this year only.
