Departing time for the ACC is up to you. You may start at any time between daybreak Sunday morning, approximately 7:30 a.m., until 12:00 noon E.D.T. Unless you are in excellent condition, we insist all Century Riders depart on or before 10:00 a.m. E.D.T.
When choosing a route, riders may choose the flat 15/25 mile routes or the rolling hills of the 50/75 mile routes, if you're not ready for a Century. The cyclists attempting their first Century or looking for a real challenge will long remember the Apple Cider Century. You are free to set your own pace, the only requirement being that you finish the distance before dark, approximately 7:00 p.m. E.D.T. All riders must be off the routes at this time.
The ACC route map in your registration packet shows all SAG stop locations, found approximately every 15-20 miles. SAG stops will be open for a set time only, so check your map for times of operation. There will be plenty of apples, bananas, cider, cookies and high energy snacks. In case of wet or cold weather, hot potato soup will be available.
All registered riders will receive a Certificate of Recognition in their Rider Packet. After completing your ride you may pick up an embossed seal with the mileage ridden (15, 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles).
