event between Carleton Co-operative Ltd., the RCMP and Carleton Ground Search & Rescue Inc. Royal Canadian Mounted

must wear a safe and proper fitting helmet.

considerations relating to bike riding. Carleton Ground Search & Rescue personnel traditionally participate in this event
by maintaining checkpoints and records, keeping the course traffic flowing smoothly and promoting general safety on the course.
