* You are responsible for you and your bike for the entire Shebang.
* There will be NO SWEEPER on this ride ... it is a "no drop" ride in the fact that you can call my cell and let me know that you're having an issue and we will figure out what needs to be done, but I will NOT be riding behind you if you are last.
* If you do the Half Century you will be riding with the entire group up to Carolina Brothers, but will return back to Shirlington with the Half Shebang group.
