Ride to Defeat ALS

Our team will be supporting the Ride to Defeat ALS on Sunday September 25 from 6 AM to around 3 PM (depending on assignment). This is a low key event with the primary focus being on charity rather than racing. The 70 mile bicycle course begins at the Longfellow club in Wayland and continues through several towns with rest stops in Hudson, Bolton, Acton, Concord, and Sudbury. While the race runs from 6AM to 3PM, some stations open as late as 9AM and some close as early as 11AM. Operators working at a course station can report directly to their station. Lunch is provided for operators in Wayland.

Due to the large area covered, some stations will require a mobile radio. There will be two roving race vehicles that will require a mobile radio. We will have both 2m and 70cm repeaters linked for this event.

If you are available, please respond to the @ email and indicate if you have a station preference and if you have a mobile radio with 2M or 440 capability.
