Are the routes hilly?
Well, yes. David Cole first claimed that they weren't (much), meaning that he had not made the routes deliberately hilly as he has done with other rides. Folks kept asking him where he found all those hills, so the consensus seems to be that the routes are less than flat. Please see the Routes page for a detailed description of what to expect.
Are there stores on the route?
Yes, and they're marked on route map. (See the Routes page for the map and cue sheet for each route.)
Here are some important notes:
- Along the 102-mile route there are several stores at 22.2, 51.0, 58.8, 59.9, 70.6, 87.6, and 92.6, making this a route that can be ridden year round.
What happens if I register and then can't ride?
Your registration fee is not refundable, but an unused registration will still serve as a tax-deductible donation to the Raven Rock Ramble, as allowed by law, if not transferred to another rider.
Can I change what distance I ride?
Are there special rates for families?
Where are there bathrooms?
There will also be bathrooms at all sag stops. Stores on the route are marked on the route map.
