No, but you should be prepared by doing some training rides. There are some climbs throughout most of the routes. We do recommend only experienced cyclists attempt the 100 mile ride.
Are the roads marked?
The roads are marked when turns are being made. There are 2 symbols on the road prior to the turn and 1 symbol after the turn to confirm that the rider is still on route. Occasionally, you may encounter a straight thru arrow to emphasize or confirm the direction of travel.
Cue sheets should be used by riders. They provide all the information that you need to stay on the route. They also list a phone number that may be used to obtain assistance from a SAG vehicle driver. SAG service courtesy of Central Penn AAA.
