Special Instructions:

This is a cutoff point. Riders under normal circumstances must have cleared this rest stop by 1:00 in order to continue on the course. Riders arriving after 1:00 have a number of options:
1. Be SAG'd forward on the course (I don't believe anyone has ever elected this option.)
2. Given a route sheet to return fairly directly under their own power to the Marriott. It's 29 miles with minimal climbing. (Many have taken this option.)
3. Get a ride back with one of the rest stop workers. (A few have elected this.)
It's important that the HAM radio operator is made aware of any dropping and the manner of return.
Please be aware that exceptions can be made to the cutoff based on circumstances. Any exception should be cleared with the Ride Director if at all possible.
