Does the Saturday ride-only option remain $50, whether signing up Early Bird or day of the event?  That's all my schedule is going to allow this year so wanted to check (I couldn't find anything about that on the link).  Thanks!

Hello! I'm hoping I may be able to get some beta as to how others have done this in the past.  I've done the Breakdown/Epic a number of times.  The year that I did the 75, I felt like I was going to run out of light attempting the 100, so I ducked out of Hickory early.  I am hoping to do the 100 this year by starting as early as I can get in the park and get on the bike.  For those of you that have done this, were the sags open by the time you got to them, or did you just plan to carry everything you needed until the return when the sags would be open?  Thanks!

Is there a list of Vendors for the Bike Demo? Looked around a bit and didn't see anything.

We will post times that the sags will be open closer to the event.  If you go out early, you may be on your own until the sags get set up.  I would carry extra supplies to get you through the morning.

I think I'm going to plan to start early and take some extra supplies and maybe have my wife or dad meet me at some point with a drop until I'm on the way back when the sags will assuredly be open.  I'm looking forward to the challenge!

I was just looking around at various bike companies websites and Facebook pages and saw that Rocky Mountain, Salsa, and Giant have scheduled demos for the Epic. That's pretty cool. I'm sure there will be a few more.
