Getting geared up for Piggy's 2017
Piggy's allows all levels of riders to meet similar types of challenges. We each do the best we can and then we get to compare our experiences over a beer and homemade brat. I can't think of a better way to spend a day.
We are looking into keeping all the loops in the Carlton Reserve, which means the 60 will probably be a double loop with some repeat sections. We are trying to reduce the chances of having stranded riders miles away from the start. Every year we end up having to go and pick up some lost soul late in the day when we are all tired.
The routes will be just as challenging as the previous years but don't worry, it looks like we might have them all marked reducing the need for GPS tracks.
Some of the other things we are working on include a beer stop at the sag, brand new sections of trail, more sausages and beer at the finish. The timing might end up being set up as a Strava Challenge for the event, maybe with Primes for certain sections; we still have to figure that out.
The trails are drying up slowly but should be in great shape by the day of the event. We have a lot of trail maintenance to do in the next few months, if you want to get involved drop me a line. We can always use more hands.It takes a little muscle work before you can pedal that trail.
