Dickie Scramble 2014: 75 miles 4/26/14
75 miles of incredible roads, potluck checkpoint, great food/drinks/gathering place at the finish line.
Registration is going to run a little bit differently...
In order of preference-
Option A: join "Dickie Scramble 2014" Facebook event
Option B: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you would like in
Option C: show up
Do not be afraid to just show up, but please do use one of the other options if/when you have decided to attend. The "pre-registered" rider numbers will be used to let the JJ Tailgator's know what to expect. They are letting us use an incredible space where even 200-300 riders could gather after the ride and eat great food. They will match their wait staff to my estimate based social media and email registrants.
This is a no sponsors, no money, ride. The only monetary transactions that will take place will be between hungry riders and the huddle. I want nothing from you but to force you to ride the hills I train on.
Click here for tentative route. This event was a late comer to the gravel thing. I've ridden in more than a few and chose this venue because it is the best... best and most challenging roads, best place to gather after.
Start time/location- 9:30 am rollout be there between 7:30 and 9 to check in. Come early and do not park downtown Elgin the schools have been kind enough to offer their lots for our use, there will be a map in my final update. We ride from JJ Tailgator's right in the middle of Main St.
Check point- This will be potluck once again- bring something good to share, load it in my truck at the start. Homemade things are always a hit, but anything you might want to eat or drink in the middle of an 80 mile ride is great.
