Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, we can look it up with an ID.
What is the refund policy?
This ride will be rain(/snow/sleet/hail) or shine. No refunds.
What's the elevation of the course?
Flat. It's Illinois. Your single speed will be fine.
Should I bring spare tubes?
Don't even ask. Just bring them. This ride is completely self-supported!
Should I ride my _______ bike or my ______ bike?
It's up to you. I'd suggest 28c+, but you'll probably curse less if you have 32c+. It's 60%+ unpaved.
Is there a shorter option?
Yes. It's a 25 mile out and back, but with a 10 mile loop at the top. Like a huge, weird-shaped, gravely lolipop with a really bent stick.
