-there is ABSOLUTELY NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! we are at full capacity
-remember next year to jump on this as soon as you see it on bikereg. it will sell out fast!

-for directions to the start/parking/bbq etc use:

-if you pass the Darkhorse Cycles Headquarter you have gone to far!!

-course will be marked 1 week prior to the race as per DEC regulations
-GPS link has been sent out to all registrants and can be found HERE
-course is not the same as last year. some new stuff, some old, some classic stewart!

-this is a Ladies and Gentleman's race! act accordingly! there is nothing worth getting hurt or hurting someone else over out there!
-check yourself! if you think you are being stupid chances are good that you are! and that you should check yourself so that we do not have to!
-keep it safe! keep it fun!

-YES there is a beer stop-- do not stop if you are under 21!!!

-do not put us in that position!!!! be responsible!

I hope “the sirens of Stewart” includes male-sirens; otherwise, we (the ladies) will be highly disappointed.

I agree with veronica. I would like to request some sexy shirtless men :)

we are diligently working to acquire a male siren! however, most of the "men" we know are cyclists and you may not want to see them with their shirts off!!!

Is the course marked?

Bman said...

Pete, yes the course is now marked. I rode it yesterday afternoon. They have black arrows on a yellow background nailed to trees or stuck in the ground. I never ride Stewart and had no trouble following the course. Also, just's a little over 2 miles before the course takes you onto signal track. Pretty fast and fun course too!

I got lucky and rode the course this past Sunday when Mike marked it out. Sweet course. Rained a lot this week, course is gonna be a sloppy fun ride, kill it!!!!!!
