Buzz about Total 200
I'm always pleased and impressed with this ride every time I've done it as a rider or volunteer. It's fun and exhausting to do both, but it's also so rewarding to volunteer for a change. Such a fun, low-key event.

* Close times are also the cut-off times. Riding at a slower rate will not allow a rider to finish the course before dark. If a rider can not make it to the Check Point OR leave that station by the “close” time they will not be allowed to continue to ride the course and will be picked up by a support vehicle. This is critical for us to maintain the required support teams throughout the route.
