Saturday on the route:
- Bike tech crew will be available at the start line and along the route to give you a tune up, fix a flat, or any other bike issues you run into.
- Pit stops are located every 12-18 miles on the route and are fully stocked with snacks, drinks, first aid, sunscreen, bug spray, and volunteers to support you!
- Safety & Gear drivers (SAG) are available to transport you to the next pit stop if you have a mild injury, need a short break, or have decided to stop riding altogether.
- We have a medical team that have access to basic medicine and first aid, and make medical calls as needed.
- Your provided rider bag will have your cue sheet, chamois butter, a RFTF water bottle, and a poncho in case of inclement weather.
What to wear and bring
- Bike Helmet! These are not just recommended for your safety, but are required while riding on behalf of Ride for the Feast.
- Bike shorts. These feature built in padding that your body will be undoubtedly grateful for at the end of a long route. If the weather is projected to be cooler, consider bike pants with the same padded feature.
- Breathable Layers. Start with a bike jersey – these are stretchy, moisture wicking, and quick drying. In the cooler hours of the morning, you’ll want a lightweight, long sleeved outer layer that
can easily be removed and stored.
- Gloves. Cycling gloves are padded to absorb trail and road vibrations, and will also feature moisture absorbing fabric.
