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 you want to go faster, start with a faster group (but you must be able to pull at that group's pace).

New Start / End Location


Our new start and end location is Celery City Craft in downtown Sanford.

This allows us to begin our day with the first 4 miles pedaling along Lake Monroe while catching an amazing sunrise over the water!

You'll end your ride with the final mile pedaling along Lake Monroe to cap an extraordinary day of cycling.

Once back at Celery City Craft, enjoy their selection of 51 craft beers on tap and relax in their outside beer garden!

We will also have pizza from Riverwalk Pizzeria available for you to enjoy while replacing all those calories that you just burned!

The pizza and beer are not included with the registration fee but will be available at a special price for our participants.
