Ride Agenda

On the Friday evening, at about 5 PM there is a riders meeting, where all the rules and expectations are explained.  This meeting is at the marshalling area approximately ( 50° 55.674’N,118° 28.909’W) as shown on the Google Earth Image above.

Following this meeting registration will continue and the sale of hands will begin.  A “hand” consists of 4 GPS points with their latitude and longitude given (degrees and decimal minute format).  The rider must then find the GPS marker at that location and record the serial number on the GPS marker.  A hand is completed when all four GPS markers have been found and their serial numbers recorded.

The evening time allows for riders to plan their ride for the next two of days.

Saturday – at approximately 7 AM registration and sale of hands will begin for the day.  Riders can begin their search for GPS Markers.  All riders are to report in to the official at the end of their ride for the day.  This way all participants can be accounted.

Sunday – at approximately 7 AM registration and sale of hands continues.  Riders can begin their search for GPS Markers.  All riders are to report in to the official by 3 PM with all completed hands verified with the target of awards and participation draws for 4:30 PM.

Completed hands can be verified at any time.
