All routes are subject to change as the Cycle NC Staff is constantly out on the routes in search of great rest stops, smooth roads, low traffic counts, construction free zones and unique towns. Routes are not final until the Cycle NC Staff make the last check one week prior to the event. All cue sheets and maps will be emailed to registered participants on the Monday before the ride starts.

Support and Gear Vehicles (SAG)
All the routes are fully supported by CNC SAG vehicles to provide assistance to riders in need. If you need help, pull off the road and pat the top of your head and they will stop to assist you. Personal SAG's are not allowed on the routes at any time.
