    If you are a part of the planning of this event could you please put in the rider information packets that all riders must obey the rules of the road. Last year my wife and I couldn't believe all the riders stretched across the road clueless of vehicles or other riders. It is a great event and I highly recommend it to everyone.

    Thank you for your input! We do put in our brochures and online content the rider rules and have security at the start line. We hope you can make it this year!
