Absolutely No Personal SAGS
In 2018, all those parked along the route in undesignated spectator areas will be turned away and reported by ride officials, police, state park and parkway officials. Those with SAGS on the course will be immediately disqualified from the ride, and not given a finishing time and removed from the finishers list. There will be a zero-tolerance policy for any cyclist who has a non-official car supporting them during the ride. If a rider needs help many volunteer techs, SAGS, and Marshals will be on the course to offer assistance.
In order to keep the course and specifically the riders safe, and to avoid traffic concerns, family/friends/personal SAGS are not allowed to follow riders. The spectators’ guide contains information about how you can cheer on your rider at key points along the course!
Due to safety concerns, family/friends/personal SAGS cannot drive or be parked on the route to Mt. Mitchell. This is a policy set forth by the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mt. Mitchel State Park that we must adhere to. If you would like to see your rider finish at the top of Mt. Mitchell, you will need to purchase a $15 spectator bus ticket which will take them from Marion to the top of Mt. Mitchell. Spectator tickets and additional meal tickets can be purchased online during and at Packet Pick-Up.
For those that joined us for the 42nd ride in 2017, there was a route change due to construction. In 2018 we will be returning to our regular route that can be found by clicking here: 2018 AOMM Cue Sheet copy.
