Le Retour du Stillwater 200k

*** Update 2 (7/25) ***
SPOT trackers will be handed out to a few selected riders. The units are about the size of a cell phone and can be carried either in your back pocket or in a bag, away from the saddle. If you happen to have a personal SPOT tracker, not already listed here:
... please send me a link to your SPOT tracking webpage.

*** Update 1 (7/20) ***
A volunteer preride was completed on Saturday by your RBA and Chris Nadovich and subsequently, the cuesheet has been updated to draft 9, dated 7/20.  This update includes a route tweak starting at mile 11.3, along with a couple of minor corrections and clarifications.

Additional Course Notes:
Mile 95.0: You'll be turning on to a short 0.2 mile stretch of dirt road that goes uphill.  While it's possible to find a good line to ride between the ruts, it might be more prudent to dismount and walk if you are unsure of your bike handling skills on dirt and gravel.

*** Original Post ***
The July R-12 is on Saturday, 26th. We'll be running the Stillwater 200k course but in the reverse direction: Le Retour du Stillwater 200k.

The start/finish is in Milford, NJ -- the southern most extent of the course.  Organizer Norman Smeal will be sending you on your way at the Milford Bakery start and greeting you at the Ship Inn finish. There is plenty of parking in the large parking lot on Church St in Milford (PA Randonneurs has permission to use the parking lot off of Church St which is now owned by the Medical supply store at the old bakery location). The Bakery opens at 6AM and has breakfast sandwiches along with an assortment of baked goods.  The finish controle and post ride gathering will be at the Ship Inn, a couple of stores down the street from the Bakery.

Veteran riders familiar with the previous editions of this course will need to switch off their auto-pilot, and pay attention to the cuesheet.  There have been a couple of route tweaks with this edition, including:
-Ridge Rd at the top of Marble Hill
-Shades of Death into Great Meadows

Additional event details are posted on the event web page:

I've already heard from a couple of riders planning to clip-in. If you're planning to join us too, please send me a note by the Thursday before the event. And as always, be sure to monitor the PA message board for any updates.
