ROUTE ARROWS AND WRISTBANDS:
The Hearts for Our Hospital Bicycle Challenge is a CAAM series event using the CAAM Events color scheme. Colored route arrows are used to mark the five routes. Each rider is provided with a wristband matching the same color as the route arrow for their ride length.
RIDE TIME AND CUTOFFS:
SAG support is from ride start until 4:00 pm. Any rider unable to complete the ride within the allotted time will be picked up by the SAG support transportation and brought to the finish at the La Hacienda Recreation Center.
Each route includes well-spaced, well-stocked Rest Stops with well-wishing volunteers to keep your bottles and stomachs full and, thanks to the restrooms, your bladders empty!
- 100-mile route – 4 Rest Stops spaced about 20 miles apart
- 64-mile route – 2 Rest Stops
- 32-mile route – 1 Rest Stop
- 20-mile route – 1 Rest Stop
- 10-mile route – 1 Rest Stop
Safe riding is very important to us and to all participants. We gratefully acknowledge the efforts of the Sheriff Departments of Sumter, Lake, and Marion counties as well as the Lady Lake and Wildwood Police Departments.
