Rider Guide

Overview


The CAAM 200k has some great new features and enhancements that will make your ride-day experience even more memorable!



Four Pace Groups with Staggered Start Times!



✅  We now offer 4 pace group options with staggered start times to allow you to ride with others at the same speed right from the start!

The pace group speed is the ROLLING speed, NOT the average.

Choose a pace group that you can "pull" in.  If you can't pull at that pace, drop down to the next pace group.  This keeps the pace groups steady and safer.

You will be working as a team, so be a good teammate!

❗️Please DO NOT BLOW UP THE PACE GROUP by exceeding the rolling pace group speed when you are pulling.

❗️IF the puller is exceeding the group pace, LET THEM GO!
- It is EVERYONE's responsibility to keep the group pace consistent.

❗️If you want to go faster, start with a faster group.
- You MUST be able to pull at that group's pace!
