SAG (Support and Gear)
SAG Support: All riders should come physically prepared to ride the entire route (280 miles.) Vehicle support will be prioritized for use in medical and/or mechanical emergencies. The SAG vehicles will also carry first-aid kits, ice, water, sports drinks and sports snacks which can be replenished during the various stops along the ride. Riders are responsible for their own breakfast on the first day and dinner all three days. We will be stopping as a group for lunch and riders are encouraged to meet for dinner as a group, but not required.
Mechanical Support: The event will provide an experienced mechanic to follow the route every day in a support vehicle to take care of mechanical emergencies. You should at least have basic tools and skills necessary to change flats and perform minor mechanical adjustments. The mechanic will also be available each evening at the lodging site. The mechanical support vehicle carries a supply of tires, tubes, and spare parts, but you should come prepared with at least (4) four spare tubes and (4) four CO2 cartridges. Riders are encouraged to switch to special puncture resistant tires, i.e. Gator Skins or Specialized Armadillos for the tour to help minimize the possibility of flats.
**Do yourself and the group a favor by starting the ride off with a fresh set of tires and tubes to mitigate the number of stops.
