No. You can ultimately ride whichever ride you like, but you must start with your registered ride group or with a later ride. In other words, if you are registered for the Savage Century
but want to do the Masochistic Metric
instead, you may start with the Masochistic Metric
start group (later) if you desire. However, you may not start with the Diabolical Double
start group (earlier). Only riders
with appropriate bike numbers will be allowed into the starting corral for each ride.
The Garrett's Greatest 25
has no options to change route, but for the other rides, once on the road there are route divergence points at mile 30.0 (Fabulous 44
diverges from 63, 100, 125),
mile 52.8 (44 and 63 diverge from 100 and 125), and mile 68.3 (100 diverges from 125). At any of these points you can decide to follow whichever route you would like, so long as within the time cutoffs.
Should you ultimately choose to ride a route longer than what was registered for, we request a donation for the registration fee difference ($10) at the Garrett County Gran Fondo Online Store
We will know this based on the KOM timing chip data, but will keep this reimbursal for ride upgrade on the honor system until it becomes a problem.
