Several things to help you prepare for the ride:

• The Amish Country Challenge is a rain or shine event, dress accordingly.

• All riders must wear a helmet.

• You must have a bike in good working order including good tires and brakes, as there are some long down hills.

• We do not recommend beach cruisers or recreational single speeds on the century or metric century ride; Holmes County does have its hills.

• We recommend that you bring a spare tube and a pump or CO2, especially if you have an odd wheel size as sag service will only have a limited number of common size tubes.

• Please bring water bottles to be able to carry enough water between aid stations which will be spaced approximately 25 miles apart.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you Saturday, September 13th!
