Although there will be some road closures, some intersection controls, and some police escorts, ALL Fondo Riders are responsible for staying RIGHT of the Centerline
“Rules of the Road” means you are subject to the traffic laws
set forth by the state of Arkansas and Missour! You must stop
at traffic lights and stop signs; ride single or double as allowed.
So, be SMART! You are riding as "Rules of the Road". Follow
the strict centerline rule and ride to the right of the centerline
at all times. Ride two-abreast. Act like your life depends on
your own common sense - because it does!
Make sure you pick your ride distance according to your realistic
ability and your training pace the past couple months. To make
sure everyone keeps pace we have necessary rerouting points. A
sweep vehicle driver will advise slower riders of their option
to continue unsupported or SAG to the finish when route support
ends. Riders opting to continue without support will relinquish
their timing chip upon notice by the sweep.
Head phones are NOT allowed in the triathlon, bike rides. If
head phones are observed then participants will be disqualified...period!
