For riders that are doing the CS1200
The drop bags are planned to be taken to the official overnight Main hotel/controls only for you. The bags will be picked up at or before the control closing time / near the time when the last rider leaves the control and we will bring the bags to the finish control near the end of the 1200k time limit.
Please do not put anything in your drop bag that you cannot do without for a few days just in case we miss you or don't get them to you at the finish for some reason.
Important !!! Note:
We will not be responsible for your drop bags or items in your drop bags.
Drop bags can taken to the Main Controls
Rooms at the Intermediate Main Overnight Controls are included for Pre-Reg'd riders
Rooms at the 3 Main Overnight Controls should be available for riders to rest and sleep during the majority of the time that control is open
For the 2017 CS1200 and TC1200
There are a few towns that have reasonable accommodation available for many different styles or habits of the riders.
We are working with Hotels at the start/finish and hopefully will set aside a block of rooms which will allow riders to reserve/book a place to stay as needed at a good reduced rate.
So please make your start and finish nights reservations soon.
At packet pickup the day before the start we plan to have food arrangements planned, etc. either in the parking lot or a nearby restaurant.
Starts will be from a parking lot close to host hotel
Please do not park at the host hotel unless you have a room there all weekend or have permission to park in a specific lot
CS1200 and TC1200 will be using several hotels along the routes
CS1200 and TC1200 will have a staff room at the start finish hotel and will have a room for drop bags or for riders to clean up at finish
Thursday Meal for riders
There will be a cookout or arrangements for a rider meal on Thursday at about 4pm with food, snacks and soft drinks early Thursday afternoon / evening. Everyone has really liked that for the TC1200K events
Some food or snacks and liquid will be available at the staffed main controls
We will have a variety of food and drinks in the main control rooms
Riders need to buy, get or carry their own food along the route. There are many stores at reasonable intervals along much of the routes and many will be open when most riders are traveling along the route
If you plan to ride straight through quickly and not stop for much sleep on the CS1200 or TC1200, there may be some long sections at night where there are not any stores open, so please plan accordingly.
If you plan to ride straight through quickly and not stop for much sleep, you may also not have access to drop bags that arrive sometime after main controls opening, so please plan accordingly.
Meals along the route are the responsibility of each rider. Many controls are stores and stores/resturants may be available between controls, many of which will be indicated on the cue sheets when posted.
You may apply before qualifying. If you have not yet qualified or are requesting a 'Qualification Exemption', please note either on your application,

The 2017 design will be a similar color scheme, but with slight changes in design elements,
The Jersey will not be included for 2017 CS1200 or TC1200 events unless you pay the extra $75 when you send in your payment.
If you get a jersey, we hope to have it in your packet, provided your payment is received soon enough to get it printed. Otherwise it will be shipped to the CS1200 participants after it is printed.
Additional jerseys may be ordered, if order is placed early enough. All jerseys ordered after Mar 15 may be delayed considerably! Orders for the jersey may be placed before and after event. A link for sizing will be posted and size will be confirmed prior placing the jersey order.
We would like to have matching items such as shorts, vest, arm warmers, etc. but cost to produce makes that unlikely. Please contact us if interested.
The basic price of an extra short sleeve jersey will be $75 plus shipping(as needed). A full price list for all items, including options may be posted later.
Orders may not be available after the event is done and we have gone home!
The approximate design for the 2017 jersey will be posted when finished
Below was the design for the 2014 jersey
