You will be riding on several trails and roads throughout the City of Golden and Jefferson County Parks. While the dirt trails of JeffCo Parks will be closed to other trail users, once you are on city/county bike paths and roadways, ALL RACERS MUST FOLLOW THE RULES OF THE ROAD. When you come to intersections in Golden, you must obey all traffic signs/lights. Of note, the intersection of 19th and Illinois, you must cross with the traffic light AND cross when safe from other vehicles. Please ride single file while riding on Golden Streets. Do not obstruct traffic and do not assume cars will stop for you. Please use common sense when riding at all times.
While we are all very excited to get an opportunity to ride fast on closed trails, please ride in control and stay on trail. Most of you ride these trails daily and will continue to ride these trails after the event. We will be making repairs to the trails after the event, but try to make your impact as minimal as possible: no skidding, hard braking, or excessively riding off trail.
Should you encounter an injured rider while you are racing, if necessary, stop to help that racer. Have the next racer notify the closest course marshal. We have several course marshals on Stage 2 (APEX TRAIL) with 3 medical stations on the top, middle, and bottom of Apex. Should an injured rider need to be evacuated, the course will be closed to racing until that injured rider is safely off course. Medical support for NTM is located at the top of Mesa Top Trail.
Aid Stations – Come prepared, but local bike shops will be serving up fun, food, and hydration at Windy Saddle, the bottom of Apex and two on top of North Table Mountain.
Weather – Should we have any concern about inclement weather, we will post updates on Facebook the morning of the race.
