Q: What exactly does self-supported mean? A: Completing the route under your own power with no support crews or caches. Motorized transportation is only allowed if you need to bail or have an emergency situation. You are allowed to leave the route but must return in the spot you left. Q: Are there aid stations for this ride? A: No. Delta Epic is a 100% self supported ride. There are no aid stations and you may only use commercially avaiable support. Q: Can I have a support vehicle? A: No. If everyone had a support vehicle on the route it would cause clutter and meyhem. Q: Can I stop at hotels to sleep for the night? A: Totally. There are a lot of really awesome lodging options out there. We will post some of our favorites as we get closer to September. Q: Isn't the Delta really flat? A: Pancake flat with absolutely beautiful stretches of untraveled gravel. This does not mean it is easy. The Delta is very exposed, headwinds can make if feel like you are climbing a 10% grade, and if there is rain.....it can get a little tacky.
