Terrible Two - CANCELED

Event Chair: Randy AA6RH (Comm Boss TBD)

DETAILS:

(Note: We are seeking a Comm Boss for this event. Please contact Randy AA6RH [linked above] if you're interested.)

Terrible Two . . . This is one of the toughest bicycle double centuries (200 miles) in the state and requires lots of good amateur radio operating skills. We've got aid stations, a few Net Control slots, and SAGs available. While traffic consists of informational traffic, we do transmit rider number and times. New this year, the Santa Rosa Cycling Club (SRCC) will be using RFID tracking of cyclists at a few locations, so some stations will be passing rider times and bib numbers and others will not (TBD). If you want to visit remote parts of Sonoma County, being a SAG for the TT is one way to do it. TT starts at 0530 and finishes around 2300. SRCC has once again added a 200K ride for those that do not wish to take on the full course. Check the event website for additional information.

2019 Route Maps (Reference)

Where are these places, you ask? Click on the coordinates to open up a Google map. Then click on the "Directions" button (on left side) to get turn-by-turn driving directions and a time estimate. And/or click on the "Satellite" map inset at the bottom left to get an aerial view. What do the Comm Boss shifts do? The Pre-Event Comm Boss is unavailable the day of the event, so that role has been divided into three shifts:
  • Comm Boss Shift 1: Bring and set up Net Control equipment. Run Net Control using an HT during 0530-0630. There is little traffic during this period because the first riders haven't reached the Calistoga Rest Stop. Supervise NC operators and interface with the SRCC event coordinator.
  • Comm Boss Shift 2: Supervise and coordinate.
  • Comm Boss Shift 3: Supervise and coordinate. Break down equipment and take possession for later return. Run NC 2200-2300.
SAGs: In addition to signing up here, please also sign up on the SRCC website: SRCC SAG signup page (opens late March 2020) If you are new to public service and want a no-pressure way to try it out, sign up as a Shadow and we'll pair you with an experienced ham. (Experienced hams may sign up as shadows too if there are many positions available...) Got questions? If your urge for more details is unbearable, click on the "Event Chair" link at the top of the page to contact the Comm Boss.
