    The routes are such that most reasonably fit randonneurs should be able to finish them within the RUSA time limits. If your fitness is low or your stop times are long then time could be tight. Some of you may need a triple or low gear compact crank, but most riders should not need extra low gearing. You will need to watch your stop times and site seeing times, so consider planning to keep a steady effort. Please save some energy for the few hills and long rollers.

There may be some sections where traffic is high, so please ride carefully and safely at all times. The intermediate controls are where stores allow you to refuel with some basic supplies. There are also some other stores along the route where you may be able to stop and get limited nutritional supplies.
