SAFETY NOTES:

  • ALL riders must wear a helmet for all portions of the ride.

  • Please take the time to review them.
  • The River Trail will have some pedestrian traffic on ride day.
  • As always, please use caution and courtesy while riding.
  • The route will have signs and/or volunteers to help direct you.
  • The roads are not closed to traffic. Volunteers will be there to assist, but all riders are responsible for their own safety and must abide by all traffic laws.  We want everyone to have a fun and safe time.
  • A SAG vehicle will be available on portions of the route where allowed.

 

PINNACLE MOUNTAIN STATE PARK HIKE:

  • You will be hiking over access roads, part of the Ouachita trail, and from East to West over Pinnacle and loop back around to the East Summit trail base.

REST STOPS:

There will be Rest Stops located at:

  • Two Rivers Park.

  • The transition area at Pinnacle Mountain.

  • Water stop near the peak of Pinnacle Mountain.

REFUND POLICY:

Because a significant amount of the funds collected during registration have already been expended by the day of the event for the production of the event, and because each event is uniquely scheduled for its date and location, registration refunds are not possible and rescheduling the event is not feasible, and therefore we have a no refund policy.  Proceeds from registration fees, donations and sponsorships will continue to benefit the ALS Association of Arkansas, and Operation Speak Easier.
