THE DAY OF THE TREAD PACKET PICK-UP and MERCHANDISE STORE

Ride Packets may be picked up at a location TBD in the Sawmill District (Heritage Hotels) on Saturday, October 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Packets will not be available on event day, October 24th unless you are an out of town participant and will be arriving after 3 p.m. on the 23rd.  Plan on spending about an hour to complete the process and visit our vendors. Representatives from various bike shops will be available to those riders whose bikes may be in need of last minute minor repairs.

Each rider will receive a number corresponding to the distance being ridden. For the sake of safety and for consideration in the costume contest, numbers should be worn on the backs of jerseys.

Sawmill District / Old Town – Hotel Albuquerque & Sawmill Market

Directions to Hotel Albuquerque – Sawmill District.

As of 1/1/21 final logistics have not been confirmed for the location of the Packet Pick-up and related parking options for 10/23 & event day 10/24. Complimentary parking will be available in the area (more detailed parking info will be posted as we approach the event day). Be aware that some streets close to Old Town – Sawmill District will be barricaded in preparation for the ride.

CHANGING YOUR RIDE DISTANCE

Change your mind about your ride distance? No problem. Remember this is a ride, not a race. You simply arrive at the starting line and join the start for your respective distance (check the starting times). You may also change your distance when you pick up your packet at the Packet Pick-up Saturday, October 23rd.

RIDE SAFETY AND SUPPORT

HELMETS ARE MANDATORY! Safety rules and route maps will be available at number and packet pickup. Volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions related to routes, major intersections, and rules of the road. Since none of the courses are closed, all of the New Mexico Bicycle laws will be applicable. Ride Marshals, identifiable by the “Ride Marshal” bibs on the front and backs of their jerseys, will be available for help with minor mechanical problems such as flats. Roving SAG support as well as bicycle mechanics will be available throughout the courses.

EMERGENCY SERVICES – RIDE SAFETY

All courses, including the Bosque Trail from the entrance at Mountain Avenue to the Alameda Trailhead, will be monitored by Set Medics LLC. Their vehicles are staffed by paramedics and trained professionals who will be responsive to any accidents involving participants or spectators. The start / finish line will be staffed with a paramedic to serve any participant needs as well. Call 911 to report any situations requiring medical attention.

RECHARGE ZONES

Recharge/aid stations will be located approximately every 7-12 miles. Recharge zone volunteers will provide food, water and Gatorade. Portable toilets will be available. Please be courteous to Recharge Zone volunteers – they are there to support you.

Be extremely careful when entering and exiting Recharge Zones.  In these areas cyclists are moving at different speeds and a high degree of communication is required (both verbally and physically). Activity levels and distractions are extremely high. All Recharge Zones are well marked with Approaching Recharge Zones. The El Pinto Recharge Zone has officers in the Street slowing vehicles and cyclists down. This is a very active area and should be approached with the utmost caution.

Recharge stations along the routes close according to a schedule that will allow cyclists to finish by 5:30 pm. If you are riding at a pace that will NOT allow you to finish by 5:30 pm the recharge stations may closed before you get there. Ride Marshalls and Sag Support will keep you informed of your positioning with regard to the ride cut off time. If it is apparent that you will not be able to stay in front of the cut off time you may be asked to abandon the ride. This request will only be made if you are unable to continue within the guidelines posted for you safety. We understand the significance of this decision. DOTT ride officials will coordinate your safe return to the finish line in the Sawmill District.

Please be prepared. If you have special dietary restrictions or need additional nutrition please bring your own or plan to stop at a store along the way.

Water and Gatorade are the only beverages served to cyclists. Remember to drink BEFORE you are thirsty. Bring ELECTROLYTE REPLACEMENTS with you to help reduce cramps and muscle spasms.

For safety reasons, cyclists stopping at recharge stations MUST move OFF THE ROAD to avoid oncoming riders and vehicles.

ROUTE / RIDE MARSHALS

Approximately 20 trained and clearly identified Ride Marshals on bikes will be on the routes. They will help with mechanical problems, minor medical needs and encouragement. If you experience a problem on the route just flag down a Ride Marshal—they are there to help you. However, they are also course marshals and will report rules of the road violations to DOTT officials. Remember cyclists violating the rules of the road will be pulled from the ride. Safety is our first concern.
