FAQ

Routes

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:

  1. There are no stores directly on the 10-mile route. There is a store at the top of Rex Road if you turn right.

  2. There is a Dollar Store on the right as you cross 401 at the 32.4 mile mark on the 100 mile route. The next store on the route isn't until you reach Broadway - 27 miles later!

 

Registration

 

What happens if I register and then can't ride?

You can transfer your slot to another rider using the online Transfer Form up until March 31, when we have to order shirts / hats. You can transfer your packet at packet pickup. The recepient needs to sign a waiver and register a new emergency contact. However, the selected merchandise is already locked into the packet.

Your registration fee is not refundable, but will still serve as a tax-deductable donation to the Raven Rock Ramble.


Can I change what distance I ride?

Yes. The preferred way is by editing your registration data and making whatever changes you like via the My Registrations page, before March 31. Otherwise, you can choose whichever route you want on the day of the event. Knowing intended routes help with Sag Stop supply planning.


Are there special rates for familes?

No, we are no longer offering special rates for familes as this event consistently sells out.
 


Miscellaneous

 

Where are there bathrooms?

There will be bathrooms at Harris Lake County Park - see the map on the Annoucements page for details.

There will also be bathrooms at all sag stops. Stores on the route are marked on the route map.
