Event details and schedule
We encourage you to pick up your riding packet on Saturday Oct. 6 from 12 Noon – 2 PM at the Kinder Farm Park Visitor Center. As you enter the park on Kinder Farm Park Rd., continue straight up a short hill. The Visitor’s Center is the first building on the left. Packets will also be available beginning at 6:15 AM on ride day. You will receive a bib number which you must affix to your jersey. You must be registered either online or by paper form and have your riding bib to start your ride and utilize the rest stops.
PARKING AT KINDER FARM PARK
Local riders may want to ride to the start and others are encouraged to carpool. From Jumpers Hole Rd, enter on Kinder Farm Park Rd. then make a quick left on Gali Sanchez Way. Follow that to crew who will direct you where to park. There will be a short walk or ride from there to the Visitor Center.
RIDE START TIMES
The ride is rain or shine. This is a “show and go” start which means you should arrive at the starting line and begin riding in the follow timeslots. This will help spread riders as they enter the B&A trail.
