Logistics: Rides must be prepared to be completely self-sufficient. Minimal on-course SAG support will be available, some legs are quite remote but we will staff controls/water stop where distances are greater than 50 miles between services. Drop bag service will be provided from the start to each pre-determined hotel at designated overnight controls and the finish control (riders need only pack a single drop bag). Hi-carb dinner such as spaghetti or lasagna will be served at drop bag controls. Riders will need to make their own accomodations, although we will seek a group rate - so check with us before you book your reservation.
Pleaseanton is accessible by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) from Oakland International Airport and AmTrack. SFR will maintain storage at the start finish hotel for those wanting to leave luggage for the durration of the ride, but SFR cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.
