Group riding experience is encouraged since riding in a group this large is not like riding by yourself. You have to pay very close attention to whats going on. We do have a lead rider who maintains group integrity and sets the pacethis rider is not to be passed. We also have a sweep rider who maintains group integrity by not allowing us to slow down or get too spread out due to cyclists unable to maintain the 15-16 mph pace. There is also a sag wagon in the motorcade for those riders who are not able to maintain the 15-16 mph pace. This is a very safe ride that is highly supported especially by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriffs Dept. as escorts and we have a NorthStar Ambulance to take care of any medical needs. You must make a commitment to properly prepare for this ride. It is a challenging but life-changing ride.Route:The 75 Mile Option will start at the lunch stop at the Chevron in Clanton.
