1. Read the RULES!
2. It's not a RACE!
3. It's a self-supported event! Be prepared!
4. Download the GPX file and upload it on your GPS device!
5. Your bike must be in top-notch conditions. If you have that strange thought that, as we are riding gravel, you mount some spare old tires ... then stay HOME!!!
Forewarned is forearmed!
6. Playing around with your bike, trying some strange setups the night before is a NO-GO!
7. If you can't make it before a certain time to certain locations you HAVE TO take the shortcuts. Or you end up missing lunch & be back home at night.
7. A fee in order to cover lunch, dinner and swag expenses is due to take part.
8. Weather forecast
