This is the schedule provided to us by the Rotary Club

1.   Time Line

 6 - 7 am Set up registration area
 7 - 8 am Register cyclists    7am is a good meetup time for CCoHers
 8:00 am Cyclists roll out
 9:30 am Registration for kids’ mini-tour
 10 - 11 am Kids’ mini-tour
 10:15 am Early cyclists return
 11:00 am Post-ride meal begins

 

2.  CCoH participating members are invited to lunch at BRCC - just let cyclists go before you.  Tell the lunch staff that you are official TDA photographers!

 

3.  One or more of our members may want to shoot the 10 - 11 am Kids’ mini-tour at BRCC

 

4.  All cyclists initial ride out Airport Rd and then Tracy Grove Road to the stop light in Dana (8:00 - 8:20) Most cyclists will visit Rest Stops 1 & 2 at 2011 Pilot Mtn Rd in Edneyville (8:45 - 11:00 am).  A great location is 200 yards beyond the corner of Bearwallow Mtn Rd & N. Bearwallow Rd - there is an attractive yard with a wood fence - cyclists will be fairly slow at that location (9:30 - 10:30).  A location with a small water fall (on the right)  is on Bald Rock Road - about 1.5 to 2 miles up from Gilliam Mtn Road near Edneyville (9:00 - 10:00).  But cyclists will be coming down hill fairly fast.   25-milers on back towards BRCC on Tracy Grove Road (9:30 - 10:00).  These times are approximate - cyclists will be spread out a good bit except at the beginning.

 

Photos should be converted to Jpegs and will be collected and directed to the Rotary Club.
