Caution: Dot watching in private has been known to lead to dot watching in public.
Roadside cheers are awesome but it's important to familiarize yourself with the race via reading the full website. We are looking for dot watchers to cheer, advocate our efforts, and support all road cyclists by giving them attention and space.
Racers can not accept support such as sustenance, supplies, shelter or intelligence from fans. This is a serious unsupported race...racers must fuel, maintain, navigate, shelter, and move themselves. ANY support should only be given in an emergency situation.
Message, call or show up with motivation, encouragement and cheers. Chalk up the route, wave a sign, ring that bell because cheers from friends and strangers alike brighten and inspire any racers mood in a BIG BIG way. In a sport where the athletes expect no award...the reward is hearing cheers and inspiring others. Thank you for inspiring the racers! We love your cheers! Sorry that we have to keep moving.
