The Wampoo Pickle Juice Challenge is a Strava segment located on Highway 15 between Keo and Bevis Corner. Look for the “Burma-Shave” type signs along the route leading up to the start of the one mile segment. Fastest male and fastest female through the segment for each route, plus the 15th fastest rider through the segment overall, win prizes and bragging rights!
There will be watermelon at the Finish Line and the Loblolly Creamery Ice Cream Truck will be serving free scoops of ice cream with chocolate milk from 9:30am until 1:00pm. Plan your ride accordingly to get back and have a cup of chocolate milk and a scoop (or two) of your favorite Loblolly ice cream.
Feel free to set up your cycling club tents and hang out at the Finish Line after the ride.
If you ordered any merch’, it will available for pick up, along with your bib number at Packet Pickup.
If you can’t make Packet Pickup, we’ll have your bib number and anything you ordered at the Start Line before the ride begins. Look for the yellow pop up Registration tent.
Please note there will be a “Bevis Gate” set up at 10:00am at Bevis Corner. All riders not through the gate by 10:00am will be directed to the finish line via the 28/40 mile left turn at Bevis Corner. This is for everyone’s protection because of the heat, humidity and the wind.
The Wampoo Roadeo is a fundraiser for Recycle Bikes for Kids (RB4K). The mission of RB4K is to give free bikes to kids, provide adults the opportunity to earn a bike, and support bike infrastructure and education in the community.
Since 2008, a large part of the mission at RB4K is to get every kid a bike. But as RB4K has grown through the years , it’s become clear how crucial bike infrastructure, safety and education is to our community. Our new expanded mission addresses that need. Proceeds from this ride, which will continue honoring the life and legacy of Marilyn Fulper, will now directly help fund all of RB4K’s future infrastructure projects.
