This SignUpGenius is used to coordinate event sign-ups. Each of the “slots”, SAGs and stations will likely be used again unless the bike club changes their operational plans significantly. You can review the SignUpGenius to get a good idea of how this event will unfold. Much of the event details are listed there.

Here is the final Operation Plan for the ride event. You can expect updates to this plan right up to the day before the event.
