Tour de Cure: Wine Country - October 2, 2022

NOTE 2022-09-24: Rest stop locations changed, 5th route added

This bicycle event is the American Diabetes Association main fundraising effort and consists of four inland bicycle routes spanning from Rohnert Park to Cloverdale.  Hams are needed to provide radio communications between Net Control, six aid stations, and SAGs.   The routes are 10, 31, 62,  83, and 100 miles long with 1500 cyclists expected.

As a trial, the event sponsor will use a new system that shows locations of riders requesting help via their smartphones and of responding SAGs.  Sounds similar to APRS but done with cellphones.  Net Control will have a terminal to see locations.  Normal communications will be passed via radio as usual.  This will be an interesting experiment.  SAGs may need a smartphone to participate in the experiment, to be determined, but we want you regardless.
