FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: When is the event?
A: Sunday November 10, 2019. Details are still being finalized but we will start around 9am in Fort Mason. There will be about 3 to 4 hours of activity followed by a group picnic.
Q: Where is the event?
A: Fort Mason is likely our “home base” with the jog towards Pier 40 near the ballpark to kayak. The bike will be from Fort Mason towards the Presidio and Golden Gate Park.
Q: What if I need a teammate?
A: Go to the forum thread and post your looking for a teammate and connect! Or e-mail Marty.
Q: is this a relay?
A: No. You compete in all events, alongside your teammate. Distances will be around 3 to 4 miles of jogging, 1 to 3 miles kayaking, another 3ish miles of jogging, then 10 to 20 miles road cycling.
Q: What if I’ve never kayaked?
A: I think you’ll be okay, but it wouldn’t hurt to try it out prior to the event. We’ll be using sit on top kayaks which are pretty stable. I’m trying to organize some practice sessions at City Kayak at Pier 40 and will keep you updated.
Q: What do I need to bring?
A: The basic equipment is bike, helmet, running shoes. Dress appropriately for the weather for the day. I’d also suggest extra layers suck as a bike jacket since you might get a little wet on the kayak. You are providing your own water and nutrition so a camelbak would be convenient. A pen and ziplock bag is also needed to carry the map. The event includes a potluck picnic so please bring something for the group. I will allocate points to the teams who take this seriously and deduct points from teams who don’t. Fort Mason does not allow grills, bbqs, and any glass.
Q: Are costumes allowed?
A: OF COURSE. Costumes are allowed and very much encouraged.
Q: Can my teammate and I use a tandem bike?
A: YES. And it will be a lot of fun. FYI you can rent a tandem bike from Sports Basement’s Fisherman’s Wharf location called Basically Free Bike Rentals (http://www.basicallyfree.com). Hours are 8am-8pm and the tandem bikes are $60 for the day. That $60 can then be used as a credit at any SB location (I think within 48 hours or something like that). If you opt for the rental, I suggest you grab it Saturday afternoon for a practice ride and then you can return it Sunday afternoon after the event. Will being on a tandem be a meaningful advantage – probably not.
Look forward to seeing you out there!
