Equipment: Past participants have ridden these courses on all types of bikes. Over the 7 year duration of the ride, past participants tell us they prefer a cyclo cross adventure type bike with tires with some traction or a mountain bike.  The event will have bike mechanics on site at the start to assist with safety checks and minor repairs. All riders must wear helmets.
Prizes: Post-event prize giveway.  All participants will receive a custom-designed event “buff” and various freebies at the post-event prize giveaway.
Requirements:   All participants must obey the rules of the road and trail. Recommended for riders ages 9 and older (Greenbelt Loop). All riders under age 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult on all rides.
