All rides start at the Farmstead Inn in Shipshewana. All participants must sign a Central Indiana Bicycling Association (CIBA) waiver at the beginning of the event. All routes will have a cue sheet, map, and GPS file available at www.tandemhoots.org. Although some printed copies will be available at the start, please download and print your own cue sheets. Routes will NOT be marked with Dan Henrys. There will be no formal SAG support. Although our cell phone numbers will be provided on the cue sheet, we will be riding the event, and will not be able to respond immediately. Routes are designed to allow rest stops at convenience stores and restaurants along the route. The nearest bicycle shop is Pumpkinvine Cyclery located 8 miles west of Shipshewana in Middlebury; we recommend that you bring extra tubes and supplies.

We suggest that you drive to the dinner because the farmis located on a gravel road. The menu will include chicken, ham, mashed potatoes & gravy, noodles, cauliflower-broccoli salad, bread, and pies. Weregret that we cannot accommodate vegans, vegetarians, and people with other special dietary needs. For this reason you may 'opt out' of the dinner and still participate in the other social activities.
