Pace yourself – really! This is not a race or timed ride. There are no winners or prizes. In fact, if you’re the first one back, you may find yourself working the Barbecue until more riders show up.
Descend hills slowly! Aside from the main highway, which got a new surface in 2018, most of our roads are in worse shape every year: potholes, gravel, broken pavement, lumpy patch jobs – you get the picture.
Stay to the right! Narrow roads with riders and cars coming the other way! You’ll think you’re on some one-lane roads – you’re not! Every road on every P2P course is two-way!!
P2P has a good relationship going with the cars, horses, walkers, tractors, deer, etc. that also use our roads. Please help us keep P2P welcome by not riding as a peloton and by riding single-file when a car is trying to pass. Thank you.
Ride the hills in order. Early Checkpoints close early; late Checkpoints don’t open until later.
Bring your phone!
Use restrooms. Please pay attention to where the restrooms are along the course, (there will be signs) and plan accordingly. We've had reports of residents being ... surprised by some P2P riders standing on the side of the road. This is bad for our relations with our neighbors, so please plan ahead.
