    FAQ

    Q. I want to participate, what do I do?

    A. Show up at the start a few minutes early to hear the route and get told not to cross the center line, run red lights or do stupid things that can injure yourself, other riders or break the law.

    Q. What is the “center line?”

    A. It is the long yellow line down the center of the road. In the United States we ride on the RIGHT SIDE of it. If you ride on the left side of it you endanger other riders, cars passing, cars coming forward and yourself. If you do cross it, simply “U” turn and ride the direction of the lane you are in and disappear into the sunset.

    Q. What if I come up to a traffic signal and it is red and there is a group ahead of me, or I am in a group off of the front of the pack?

    A. You come to a complete stop, put your foot down and wait for it to turn green before proceeding. 

    Q. How do I get the win?

    A. By not crossing the center line, obeying traffic lights, riding in a safe manner and crossing the only sprint on San Juan 1st.

    Q. What do I get if I win one of the other sprints on the route?

    A. You get to look silly because on this ride there is only one sprint, the one on San Juan.

    Q. What is the route?

    A. This is complicated….

    Start in the Alley behind 2419 K street. Head west and make a right on 24th st. Left on C st. Right on bike trail between 19th and 20th street. Exit bike trail on Northgate Blvd – head North. Left on Garden Hwy. Pace picks up after the I80 over pass.
