I've made a facebook group for this event as well, but all the information is posted here. Feel free to friend me on facebook or respond there if you have anything.
There is no registration process, charge associated with, or postcard needed. Just show up On January 29th and ride. We will be beginning and ending in the Glynner's/Fiesta Mexicana parking lot. We will support the local businesses and it is a large parking lot but it would be nice if you carpool or ride.
I will provide hand-written route notes. This is not a race, although I anticipate multiple groups forming, and as such I will make a guess as to how many copies to bring. The 70-75 mile route has a refreshingly small number of turns or other notations needed and will fit neatly on two normal "tulip diagram" type sized pages. Dover's Road Trip Bar and Grill is a fine establishment which has a full menu and bar and is just 2 blocks off the route roughly 1/3 of the way through. Chatfield is also on our route, located just past half-way. If you are cold, hungry, uncertain etc., take care to replenish as needed while in Chatfield. The route directly passes a Subway, Quik Trip and a couple of small town bars. We will be riding up Magnum Rd soon thereafter which I'm sure some of you may remember from past Almanzo 100s. 80% of the way through their is a brief out and back option to check out some interesting heritage and the Old Dubuque Stagecoach Route. The final 12 miles or so are pavement and bike path. We intend to sit down and share some good food and drink at the finish.
Here is a final teaser image-
