Rest Stops & S.A.G. (Support and Gear)
All Trailnet Classics are fully supported by mobile on-course mechanics plus multiple food, hydration, and first aid stations.
This year we’ve partnered with TraQCentral for improved S.A.G. support. This free app gives a stronger, safer, and more efficient way to call in for mechanical or medical support with the tap of a button. Your GPS coordinates will instantly be sent to our dispatch center and you’ll receive a text message with an ETA within minutes.
We are following local and federal guidelines for COVID-19 and have measures in place to allow people to ride safely. We appreciate your cooperation.
