THE RIDE
5) At the TAG POINT you simply bring the tag in proximityof the reader at which point the reader will activate a loud buzzer to confirm that the read has been successful. It’s simple!
6) There are 2 checkpoints on the route at the Breakfast stop and the Lunch Stop. You will be required to stop and tag yourself at the designated tag point (the route will be funneled so you can’t miss it.)
7) Similarly, when you cross the finish line you will do the same.
8) Note: Your Race Finish time will be measured on your Finish Tag Time, not when you crossed the line.

There will be food, dinks & coffee at the start/finish area for sale as well.
