Subject: GdB2008 - Ride with the Champions
Due to personal emails and phone calls I have received in the last couple of days, requesting for a shorter course, I am happy to inform you guys and gals that yes, we have shortened the distance down to 68 miles from 100 miles. So the Giro d'Barkada 2008 will now be just a couple of miles longer than a Metric Century. It will cover almost 90% of the famous Delta Century except that we are starting at the Oak Grove Regional Park on 8 Mile Road and I-5. We have also moved the start time to 9:00 a.m.
We will have a mass start and will have a lead vehicle from the park all the way to Highway 12. This way, we will all have a chance to really ride with the champions.
There will be maps and directions and the road will be marked with RED ARROWS showing the turns. Water stops will be available and there will also be gas stations and stores with rest rooms along the way.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call us or email us. My cell phone is 209-594-9211.
Also the park opens at 8:00 a.m. and there is a $5 entrance fee.
There will be raffle prizes and we also hope to have some games to make it worthwhile for those out of towners.
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
