The guide indicates completely self supported. There is mention of a support vehicle in the guide. There is mention of outhouse stations with minimal snacks.
Is the biggest concern that riders would completely rely on the aid stations for fuel so if it’s written as, no support, riders will bring more food for themselves?
If providing the snacks is expensive, has there been discussions about a sign up sheet for outside parties or riders to contribute to the snack stations?
My primary concern is the amount of food, water and gear needed on the ride. Carrying all of it will be a lot. Especially the water. with 200 miles, two or three full meals with protein will be needed. Have any food trucks or local charities been approached to provide a sand stop or other for purchase?
