We've got some hills, and we've got some flat spots. Athens is the highest point of Clarke County, so there's always a climb at the end. Think of it as an "aerobic opportunity".
GTR was one of the first rallies to offer GPS maps, way back in the early 2000's. We will have many forms of GPS available, through Ride With GPS.
We limit the size of the rally so that it will be more intimate and personal. Our facilities will only hold so many people. And our sanity gets tested if we make the rally too big.
We hope to have the services of "tandem whisperer" Ric Becker of House of Tandems at GTR this year. If Ric can't fix it, you need a new bike!
We usually have store stops located at strategic places on the routes. We also give out snacks before each ride begins. If you are a picky eater, you should bring some of your own snacks as well.
Plan on hot weather. Drink lots of water to avoid dehydration and cramps. Expect highs in the upper 80's and lows in the mid-60's. We start rides at 8:30AM to beat the heat.
There are some captains who are rumored to have stock in Gillette and Nair. However, the great thing about tandem rallies is that you will always find someone your speed to ride with.
Eve's nails are 100% owner maintained. Our guess is that they will match her bike.
