What type of bike should I ride?  The AOTC is designed for road bikes—lightweight bikes with thin tires (> 100psi) and multiple gears built for speed on paved roads.  For safety of all riders and logistical considerations, please, no recumbent bikes, elliptical bikes, mountain bikes, unicycles, tri-bikes / aerobars, or motorized bikes.

How do I know if I’m in shape for the AOTC?  For the 100 K route you should be reasonably confident that you can average at least 10 miles per hour for 6 1/2 hours over 65 miles of hilly terrain (grades up to 15%, over 3,700ft of ascent).   This pace will enable you to finish by 3:30PM.  If you can’t meet these criteria please consider doing the 40 or 60k route this year and prepare for the 100K next year.  

HELMETS REQUIRED FOR ALL RIDERS

Weather conditions are unpredictable this time of year, so be prepared for heat, cold, and rain.
