THIS IS A GROUP RIDE—we help support and encourage one another—that is what Camp SAM is all about to these kids and their families. Group riding experience is encouraged since riding in a group this large (ROL 2010 had 70+ cyclists) is not like riding by yourself. You have to pay very close attention to what's going on. We do have a lead rider who maintains group integrity and sets the pace—this rider is not to be passed! We also have a sweep rider who maintains group integrity by not allowing us to slow down or get too spread out due to cyclists unable to maintain the 15-16 mph pace. There is also a sag wagon in the motorcade for those riders who are not able to maintain the 15-16 mph pace. This is a very safe ride that is highly supported especially by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Dept. as escorts and we have a NorthStar Ambulance to take care of any medical needs. You must make a commitment to properly prepare for this ride. It is a challenging ride in many ways but we're choosing our challenge, the kids at Camp SAM don't get to pick their challenge—cancer.
