2017 Cone-Azalia Classic

As you may have heard we're doing an informal Cone-Azalia this Saturday (6/10/2017).  This is a dirt road ride, but one that you should be able to do on a road bike.  The 52 mile course is relatively tame, the 98 mile course has a few spots with big pot holes and that infamous golf ball sized gravel from years past.  We've laid out the routes so that both do the same loop to start with, but for those that want to go longer we've added a second loop.  Route maps are below.  

Details - Both rides will start and finish at Original Gravity Brewery (440 County Street, Milan, MI) at 10:00 AM.  Parking is available in downtown Milan, or at Wilson Park (147 Wabash Street, Milan, MI).  Restrooms are available at Wilson Park or Morning Owl Coffee downtown.  This is first and foremost a ride, but we will be providing a growler to the first man and woman back to the Brewery (each distance).  We're planning for water stops at 30 miles, 52 miles, and 82 miles - but you should come prepared with food/water.  Make sure you have a spare tube (or two), CO2 and/or pump for your tires.  

Timing - This is not a race, but we'll be doing electronic timing with bibs and RFID chips.  You can pick up a bib starting at 8:30AM day-of.  Bib pickup and start/finish will be at Original Gravity.  There is no entry fee for this event - it is 100% free!  

Volunteers - We're still looking for a SAG wagon driver.  Email harvey.elliott@gmail.com if you'd like to volunteer.
