September 17, 2011 – Kettle Moraine Optimist Ride

64 Mile Figure 8:
The 64 mile riders riders can start anytime between 8:00 and 10:00am. We expect that the riders who are choosing this longer ride are experienced with longer rides and can plan their start time so that they are able to return to our tailgate party by 3:00pm. Please keep in mind that you must include your stop time when computing your average speed.

18 Mile and 35 Mile Rides:
For the 18 and 35 mile riders there will be a mass start at 10:30am. With this start time, we expect that very few riders will return before we are ready to serve lunch. A 35 mile rider who averages 8 or more miles an hour will return by 3:00pm. If a rider does not expect to average 8 miles an hour they can leave prior to 10:30am.

Road Markings:
Where possible, roads will be marked with paint markings (link to markers) with two marks before each turn and one mark after each turn. Where necessary, signs will warn riders of busy roads and stop signs at the bottom of a hill. Some townships do not allow road markings. Signs will be used in these areas.
