We know a lot of you are eager for this year's routes and Riders Guide. SO ARE WE!
In short: Things are looking good for all routes to proceed as planned without issue. We always wait until June to check road conditions, and with flooding this year, we want to make absolutely sure the routes are clear for the 29th. At this point, the routes will extremely similar (if not identical) to the 2018 routes -- though we are watching the brief 3-mile Commerce loop closely for flooding for our Century riders. We will, of course, adjust this week should anything change.
Our plan is to post the maps/GPS links by this Thursday at the latest. We'll also be sending out the Riders Guide -- so be looking for an email from "email@example.com" soon. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. We love having a fun ride for you all, but the safety of our riders and volunteers is our top priority.
If you total our 13 years times -- 33 miles for each year -- we have ridden in Mississippi County at total of 429 miles. There must be some magic in that old blacktop road(s) that keep bringing us back. Folks, this is the creme de la creme of all rides. These organizers know how to run a ride.--- Larry McGuire
The rest stop and road marking were clear. Every person who was helping at the stops registration tables, etc. were some of the best mannered people. So to sum this AWESOME JOB.--- Brad Davis
