Thirty minute coffee stop at Starbucks in Flourtown at mile 30 or so. (It's all about the coffee.) Will regroup at top of long hills if necessary, but riders are expected to do the advertised pace (which is what our computers should read as "average" at the finish). Partial cue sheet showing turns, but not milage. PLEASE PREREGISTER: it saves time and improves substantially my ability to read your emergency information (and it does not matter if you do not show up since we will not be waiting for anyone beyond posted start time).
