Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide shuttles?  No.  The ride starts and finishes at Water Oak Suites, corner of East Main and Johnson Street in Downtown Brevard. Ample parking is available in the surrounding area.

What should I wear?  You should be prepared for any weather situation. We have had temperatures in the high 60's and in the mid 30's in the past. If you haven't participated in the ride you will find that regardless of the temperature you will have a great time. The Pisgah Forest Rotary Club goes the extra mile with the rest stops and traffic support. The ride will be held unless we have extreme weather conditions.

What is for lunch?  A hot lunch with a veggie and carnivore option will be provided after the ride.

Are the courses marked?  Each course has color coded arrows on the road and signs before intersections. We also have traffic support by local law enforcement at the major intersections.

What about the rest stops?  There are two rest stops for the 40K:  Mile 8 and mile 18.  Two rest stops for the 60K: Mile 8 and mile 26.  Four rest stops for the 100K: Mile 8, mile 30 (closes at noon), mile 42 (closes at 1:30PM), and mile 53 (closes at 3:00PM).  Rest stops are well stocked with PBJ sandwiches, bananas, oranges, cookies, various bars, gu brew, gu energy gels, and water. 

Are there bathroom facilities?  Yes, rest stops 1, 2, 3, and 4 all have outhouses or restrooms.

What if I have problems with my bike?  There are SAG vehicles on every course and there will be a bike mechanic at the start finish for minor repairs.

What if it rains or the weather becomes hazzardous?  As cyclists are a hardy bunch, the ride will be held rain or shine.  However, if severe weather (lots of snow/ice/lightning) occurs the Event Coordinator may cancel the ride in consideration of rider or public safety.  There will be no refunds if this unlikely event occurs.
