Things you should have:
Remember, the spirit of randonneuring emphasizes self-sufficiency. If anything on your bike breaks, you gotta fix it. (Have you ever replaced a spoke, 12 hours into your ride, in the driving rain, at 40 degrees F?) Also, it's your responsibility to have your brevet card properly completed at each control point. DO NOT LOSE YOUR BREVET CARD!
Please be polite/courteous/civil to convenience store attendants and all park service employees. It's your responsibility to know the Alaska state and local road laws. Link to Alaska Bicycle Law.
Reminders: Join or renew your RUSA membership.
Most Important: All riders are reminded that any failure to conduct the ride in accordance with RUSA rules (www.rusa.org), applicable laws, or any special instructions or equipment requirements for this ride may result in a time penalty or disqualification. Sorry, I had to say that. Right now would be a good time to read RUSA's Rules for Riders (http://www.rusa.org/brvreg.html) Also, you've got to wear your helmet.
