Message From the President – Doublecross is Right Around the Corner!!

The Doublecross is a few days away!!

Saturday, July 7th
at 7:00 am the Registration Volunteers will be at the ready to get you registered, affix the wristband to your wrist and wish you well and on your way to a ride that will take you on a flat, scenic ride across Delaware.  For those that aren’t aware. the Doublecross Metric Century is so named because the route crosses the state twice over a 62 mile route. 

Please Note: You must go thru Registration, whether you Pre-Registered online (thru or are a Walk-Up Day-Of Registration to get the wristband.  Without a wristband you will not be permitted into the Rest Stops for food, drink or to use the facilities nor will SAG support be offered.  Everyone that goes thru Registration will be given a wristband.  

As I mentioned Registration opens at 7 am and closes at 9 am, so don’t delay getting thru Registration and on the road.  The forecast for Smyrna between 7 am and 3 pm is Sunny, 66-78 degrees, with humidity decreasing from 55% to 45% during the event.  We couldn’t ask for better weather!  Evidently our Major Ride Director, Glenn Nichols paid someone off for this kind of riding weather.  Thanks Glenn!!

Registration for Walk-Up Day-Of registrants is just $30 with all profits for this and our other events going to cycling related non-profits at the end of the year to support their initiatives and causes.  The last three years we have donated about $14,000, this year we hope our events will allow us to donate more but we need your support to do that.

The GPS-type files (*.fit, *.gpx, *.tcx) and a PDF of the cue sheet have been uploaded to the web site for downloading.   Please select this link and open the GPS File Info tab to select the file(s) to download. 

The route is marked the Route Arrows which we have been using for the past couple of years.  Since we moved to them (as opposed to chalk paint) we have received nothing but kudos for making that switch.  Photos of what they look like are below.

I hope to see everyone there, it’s going to be a great day for a ride!!

Thank you in advance for your support!

(P.S. We may be venturing into the use of a credit card app for this event.  If you think that you might want to use plastic instead of cash, please bring both to Registration and if all goes as planned, you will walk back to your car with your cash still in your pocket and a $30 charge on your plastic.  This is something new for us, so if you opt to use plastic, please be patient with us.  We hope that this is successful so that we can offer this as another means of payment going forward.)
