Checklist/What to bring:
Living Red Participants:
A Living Red Participant is a person who lives with diabetes and showcases the courage it takes to live every day with this challenging disease. All riders who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and have met the $250 fundraising minimum are eligible to receive a Red Rider Jersey (please let us know if at the time of your registration, you did not mark yourself as a Red Rider and we will update our records).
With hundreds of participants who may share a similar story, and hundreds more to support them, Living Red can help with the first step or the millionth – in the fight to live a healthier life!
Breakfast will be provided by Bruegger’s.
Lunch will feature options from Chick-Fil-A and local Breaking Bread.
Finish line festivities:
Here are a few things you can expect after your ride:
Along the course:
Route Support: The Motorcycles and SAG Vehicles (Support and Gear) will be offering support to the Tour riders on every route and will be marked with American Diabetes Association SAG Stickers.
If you have stopped along the roadside and need assistance, make sure to flag them down. They can provide cyclists with roadside assistance and have the capability to call for medical or emergency assistance anywhere along the route.
Very important - If you have stopped and DO NOT need assistance, please give them a 'thumbs up' to prevent them from having to stop when it is not necessary. Minors must be accompanied by an adult in the SAG vehicle.
Bike Route Marshals:
Our official Bike Route Marshals will be wearing “BIKE ROUTE MARSHAL” bibs as they ride the routes to ensure riders are following the “rules of the road.” They are also there to help you if you need anything!
Course Closing: The routes will close at the following times:
There is no support after the close time. Please ensure you have trained to be able to finish your route in time. As late afternoon approaches, one of our SAG vehicles will ask you if you would like to be brought to the finish.
There are four (4) rest stops conveniently located at regular intervals along the routes. You’ll be able to take a rest, get fruit and/or a snack, sip on Gatorade, and refill your water bottles.
The weather is forecasted to be in the high 70’s and partly sunny. Remember that sunscreen and water bottle!
