Central Route Coordinator News – April 2019

Central Route

Only 23 days to go and 587 people are registered  for Central Route

Only 23 days to go before you start on the greatest motorcycle ride in the world.

If you are an FNG please read the New Participant section on the webpage “RFTW.US”, 10 days in May and FAQs.

Don’t forget to pre-register! Pre-Registration ends on April 30th at midnight.  This will help those organizing the Run with knowing the number of meals and fueling spots to cater for. This will also save you $20.00.  You don’t have to pay your registration fee until you turn up at your starting point.

  1. Prepare your bike, tires, etc.
  2. Start drinking extra water
  3. Don’t over pack

This is a great experience and to fully appreciate it please enter the Run with an open mind and no negative attitudes. To operate this route takes a lot of effort on our volunteer leadership, so if you are directed to do something or move somewhere just do it.  While on the Run during the day there is no time to explain why you are being asked to do something. When we arrive at our destination for the night please feel free to ask as many questions as you would like.  Our Leadership teams are there to help you.

Cars and Slingshots are very welcome on the Run and if registered can participate in all our events.

Important: Vehicles and slingshots cannot travel in the Pack or fuel with the Pack. The best spot would be a couple of miles ahead of the Pack.

 Note:  Even if you preregister, you still must bring all your documents to the registration point, license (motorcycle endorsed) bike registration, up to date insurance. If you are bringing a minor you must have a notarized permission letter.

This has to be checked by registration in-person before you are assigned a platoon.

Every year we have some folks who turn up who forgot their docs.

If you do not have the proper documentation, you cannot participate in RFTW.

It would be a shame after planning for this great mission.

Looking forward to seeing you in May
