We have a drop system organized where you can arrange to have supplies (lights, gear, food, etc.) left at the aid stations. You are allowed two - 1 gallon ziplocks bags to be used as drop bags that we will provide. That includes your lights!!!! If the ziplock cannot seal closed we will not send it onto the aid stations. No camelbak drops allowed unless it fits in one closed gallon ziplock bag. They must be labeled with race number and are to be dropped off Saturday evening from 4 to 10:00 PM. They cannot be picked up again until Sunday evening. If you are unable to pick up your supplies we can mail them back to you for $25. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or missing drop bags.
There is 1 mini water station and 5 full service aid stations complete with food, beverages, and support. The aid stations high spirits will keep you rolling and having fun all day. When stopping at a station please do not drop your bike in the road, either keep it between your legs or walk it to the side of the road and place it clear from harms way.
We will have cut-offs at Aid Station 4, 5, and 6 - they will be announced at the riders meeting as they will be partially based on forecasted weather.
If you have friends or family that aren't racing in the SM100 please have them sign up to volunteer. We have some great volunteer spots that could use their help. We do request if non racers are coming to this event they volunteer. Volunteers are a great aspect to this event as well as all of our other events, so please help out.
