Equipment

Please perform a thorough inspection of your equipment BEFORE event day. Mechanics will be at the start, but take your bicycle to your favorite shop for a tune up so you arrive at the Fondo start line with a functioning machine. The last thing you need is a bad wheel or your brakes to fail, turning you into a two-wheeled projectile. For your safety and the safety of everyone around you, check your gear and don’t forget your helmet. Mechanics will be on course to assist with basic roadside repairs; however, it is ultimately your responsibility. In other words…be prepared.

Centerline Rule

This event is held under “Rules of the Road”.  Cyclists must observe all traffic signals and rules. Fondo riders are responsible for staying RIGHT of the Yellow or Centerline. When we say ALL that also includes everyone! A Fondo bicycle rider is considered traffic. Parts of the routes will also encounter rural drivers. Parts of the routes will encounter vehicles at highway speed. So, be SMART! You are riding under “Rules of the Road”. Follow the strict centerline rule and ride to the right of the centerline at all times. Ride two-abreast. Act like your life depends on your own common sense – because it does!

Rules of the Road

“Rules of the Road” means you are subject to the traffic laws set forth by the state of Arkansas! You must stop at traffic lights and stop signs; ride single or double as allowed. Be smart and be safe!

Route Support Ends at 3:30pm

Make sure you pick your ride distance according to your realistic ability and your training pace the past few months. We can’t have you cycling into the night! To make sure everyone keeps pace we have necessary rerouting points and/or SAG points. A sweep vehicle driver will advise slower riders of their option to continue unsupported or SAG to the finish when route support ends. Riders opting to continue without support will relinquish their timing chip and bib# upon notice by the sweep.
