  1. Going to try and get there as close to 8 as possible. Hopefully enough chain lubing and chit chatting to give me the couple of minutes grace I might need. Or is it a strict start time of 8am SHARP !

    1. Try to be ready to ride at 8am as we will start rolling very close to that time. And you'll be glad we did, as this is a tough 50 miler, but very fun!
