The course has been verified with the cue sheet and turns are correct. You will receive a cue sheet and a map before the start.  There will be 3 places where riders can locate water along the course and locations are noted on the cue sheet.  The water locations are parks in Big Prarrie 9.2 miles, Glenmont 23.5 miles, and the Loudonville swimming pool 38.2 miles. There will be a bridge out for construction before Glenmont.  You can bypass the bridge and cross the ditch with no problems if its dry.
There are a few roads that are missing signs and they are noted on the cue sheet  with a * (* L on Clayplant Rd*).  Most of the roads missing signs were noted during course pre-rides and every effort has been taken to mark them on the cue sheet.  There will be a few blind turns that have been marked in bold as well (*Sharp L on Twp 213*). Having a accurate cyclocomputer along with the map and cue sheet will prevent you from getting lost.
