We try to ride as a group with a lead and a drag rider who keep in contact by cell phone.
Please contact us to reserve your spot. This allows us to arrange transportation (how many cars/bikes/bike racks) and notify you about any last minute adjustments or cancellations.
Each ride has at least one vehicle and driver available for emergencies (human or mechanical).
