Remember that you alone are responsible for your safety, so use your judgement and do not blindly follow others . We will provide some support, and aid stations approximately miles 30 and 60, but you should always be self sufficient. All distances are approximate.
The short ride riders will get support to the turnaround at mile 30, and then will be on their own for the way back. Coach Trina will be a sweeper for that ride. Riders not reaching the turn around point/aid station at ~ mile 30 will be required to turn around and do the short route. Riders not reaching the bottom of East Grade by 1:00 PM will be required to go straight on the 76, skirting Palomar mountain rather than going up it. This cuts off about 6 or 7 miles as well as 2K feet of climbing and rejoins the long course at the bottom of south grade. These cutoffs ensure that everyone finishes before dark.
We suggest you print out the word documented cue sheets provided above and take them with you. They are better and more succinct than the cue sheets provided by ridewithgps.com The short ride GPS, file adds a few extra miles after the finish at Kit Carson Park. Just ignore that and finish up at Kit Carson.
How to put these files on your Garmin 800 or Garmin 500 We suggest you use the TCX file. I've also made a video on how to do this:
