  1. This is a race weekend.
  2. Race weekend polls are voted on using event brite
  3. Some tickets are free – for example – “I’m staying home to do the group brick workout on Saturday at Riley’s Lock.
  4. Still others may be free – forexmple – I’m coming down to cheer and get in a practice swim
  5. The options are endless and wildly exciting!

There is a local “group brick” from Riley’s Lock.  Please understand that this is an UNSUPPORTED brick.  We meet as a group – I’ll have someone volunteer to bring a sign in sheet and cue sheets – but there will be no sag drivers or workout leaders.

Please recognize that you are also welcome to do your workout at Lake Anna and Cheer and hang out with us.  Just stay out of the way of the race (eg – start riding at 6 am OR 2 pm so you are out of the way of the race).   You may do teh event brite, hang out, camp, drink beer, whatever you like!
