Volunteer – Sign Up – Here (Terrible Two)
Terrible Two – 15 June 2019
This is one of the toughest double centuries in the state and requires lots of good operating skills. We’ve got aid stations, a few NC slots, and SAGs available. While traffic consists of informational traffic, we do transmit rider number and times – you will get a lot of traffic handling experience. If you want to visit remote parts of Sonoma County, sag for the TT is one way to do it. TT starts at 0530 and finishes around 2300.
This year the cycling club has added a 200K ride for those that do not wish to take on the full course, so this may add aid stations. Also, the course through Napa county is changing due to road conditions in areas affected by the wildfires and is still in planning stages at this writing (01/20/19). Check the event website for more info and course routes.
This is a charity bicycle event sponsored primarily by Kendall-Jackson with proceeds benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation (Parkinson’s disease research) and the local community. There are four courses (70.2, 52.4, 34.5, 10.7 miles) in the northern and western parts of Sonoma county, with the first riders departing at 0800. In addition to Net Control, aid stations, SAGs and motos, we will incorporate radio bike marshals (hams).
Radio Motos and Radio Bike Marshals must have approval from Bike Monkey to work this event. Contact John Prouty at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain approval.
We will not be reporting rider times.
