EDIT: ( 3-21-2020 ) This ride is on hold due to the COVID-19 virus and the closing of the U.S. - Ontario border.
I am hopeful the border will re-open before July 15th, and the ride will be run !!
2020 Big Great Lakes 100 - 2,755 miles around all 5 Great Lakes
Meet Wednesday, July 15th @ 10:30 am (EST) at Gallop's Marathon Gas Station
just north of the Middlebury, IN Indiana Tollroad exit or at another location along the route.
You may start your ride anywhere along the entire route.
But you must end your ride at your starting location in < 100 hours
and all 5 Great Lakes must lie inside your route.
If 8 or more Riders do the ride, I can handle your paperwork and submit your ride to the IBA as part of a "group" ride.
Please download and complete the Rider's Information Form and either mail the completed form or email me a picture of the completed form.
BTW, if you have been convicted of a felony or DUI you probably will not be allowed to enter Canada. They check for that in the computer at the border crossing. But ( according to a Canadian Border Service Officer I talked with, if you had a DUI conviction ( without any other crime associated with it ) and it's been at least 10 years since the conviction or probation ended, you will be allowed to enter Canada.
To enter Canada and return to the U.S. a passport, Enhanced Driver's license, Nexus Card, or birth certificate & driver's license is required.
