We ran recently the Hawk's Nest 200k for the July R-12, the August 4th edition will be exactly the same and the previous course notes have been posted here:
I spoke to the folks at the Water Gap Diner, and I made arrangements to have the cook there early, in order to get the grill warmed up -- so hopefully, they'll be ready for us this time and there won't be any delays in getting food ordered.
It looks like a hot numid day on tap, although the dew points today are several degrees lower in Hawley -- hopefully, that dry slot will hang in there for us tomorrow! But I plan to pack an ice sock, just in case, along with a camelback to keep hydrated.
I have a couple of SPOT GPS trackers that I recently bought and have been evaluating them for use on brevets to help keep track of riders. I'll be handing these out to a couple of riders at the start to carry along with them.
