Last minute details.

Last chance to save a few bucks because online registration closes at 5 pm today. If you show up on Sunday, registration is $35.00. The fee helps pay for insurance, food, supplies and t shirts and any extra funds raised go right back into the building and maintaining the trails. Support your local trail builders and have a some fun with like minded people.
The park gates open at 7:30 am, sign in follows shortly after that. No pets or glass bottles are allowed in the the park.We will have a riders meeting around 8:00 - 8:15 am. Remember the park closes at 6 pm and your car will get locked in. The weather should be perfect 60's to 80's.Make sure you have enough water to ride 3 hours or more, the only water source will be at mile 28. Carry a spare tube and a way to pump it up, the recent dry weather increases the number of sand spurs which can create slow leaks in your tires. Go tubeless! Grilled sausages and foamy beverages will be waiting for you at the finish which should be a lot of fun.
If you need a GPX file you can use the link to the ride previously posted. The Ridewithgps site allows you to create a file. The only issue is that the single track is not in detail, just the general direction is indicated. No worries though as that part of the course is well defined. So your GPS might beep for that section, just follow the trail, ignore your electronics for a little while and all will be well when you get out of that section. The whole course will be marked with easy to follow arrows painted on the ground and with signs. 
This years Piggy will be challenging for some but overall  a lot of fun.
Harden up!
