BEFORE AND AFTER GATHERING
The main tent will be open at 6:30 am to welcome you to DAM J.A.M. with light snacks, coffee, and water. Pre-registered riders can pick up your packets. We will also accept last-minute registrations. Stop in and say hi!
After your ride, the party continues from 11:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. at the Pryor Creek Recreation Center.
Food trucks will be there with a variety of yummies for sale. Tables and chairs will be set up under the main tent. Please stay around and enjoy!
Ride With GPS integrates nicely with Garmin, Wahoo, Strava, and other devices and services.
We'll also have paper maps for those of you who prefer an old-school experience.
One mass start at 8:00 a.m. Police will escort the riders through two significant intersections on their way out of Pryor.
First is a left onto Carbide Road, which regularly has fast traffic and drivers won't expect bicycles.
Second is across Highway 20, which is 65+ mph with four lanes and a median.
If you go on your own, you won't be escorted and you must obey all traffic signs and signals.
If you leave earlier than 8:00, you might find yourself alone out there without rest stops or route support because they may not be set up yet. Your call.
NAVIGATION AND SUPPORT
All routes will be surface marked with yellow paint. Key locations will also have directional signs. Routes are subject to change without notice.
Limited break-down assistance and SAG support will be on all routes. Full mechanical services will be limited.
Please be equipped to fix your own flats and know how to do it.
Road support and rest stops close by 4:00 p.m. If you are still riding at 4:00, we'll give you the option of continuing on your own, unsupported, or taking a ride back to the start/finish area.
Helmets required for every rider, no exceptions.
No headphones or other distractions.
All riders under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Carry water with you... and drink it.
Expect automobile traffic. All routes are on open public roads with no special traffic control for this event. Obey all vehicle laws. Ride no more than two abreast. Be alert to traffic (see the note above about headphones and other distractions).
Please don't cross the centerline, ESPECIALLY ON HILLS!! Every year we see some of you do it and we're amazed you're still alive.
Pass on the left. Signal your moves. Use standard warnings to other riders..."bike on your left", "car back", "car passing", etc. Yield to faster riders, especially on hills.
