- When a manifest is full, turn it in at the start/finish line (checkpoint #4) to receive a new manifest.
- A manifest is only counted as complete if all checkpoints have been visited and verified, this also includes the final lap.
- No points will be awarded for a lost manifest, return to start/finish line to receive a new manifest.
- No laps awarded until manifest is turned in.
- No manifest will be accepted after 7:15pm Saturday night, turn them in whether they are complete or not to be counted.
- There can only be one member of a team active on the course at a time unless you are in the tandem or convoy class.
- Bonus Checkpoints are optional (but strongly encouraged)
- A completed bonus checkpoint is worth a random number of points to be determined after the bonus checkpoint has closed and the paperwork is returned to the starting line.
- Each bonus checkpoint location is autonomous, and has created their own prerequisite for marking a bonus manifest. Remember to sign out at the bonus checkpoints to be counted.
- Slow Down when riding through block parties.
- Don't be a jerk! Respect the community.
- We throw this race because we love our neighborhood.
