If you are riding with the club, bring your ride leader information with you and the cue sheet.
Your ride leader may provide this, but it is a good idea to be prepared just in case your ride is a drop ride and you are dropped!

*If you are not riding with us as a club, but you are with a small group, you should call Toga to see if it is okay with them that you park your car.
