The Ramapo Rally provides roving SAG (support and gear) support (Rally staff driving the route in cars).
Everyone is expected to carry at least one spare tube and tools to fix a flat tire and have the knowledge of how to fix a flat tire. Or ride with a buddy that can.
If you are having difficulties fixing your flat or other issues you cannot manage by yourself, it’s likely that a fellow rider may be able to help (ask nicely!). If you have a mechanical problem or other issues you cannot manage by yourself, you can wait for or call for SAG support. After receiving your call for support, a SAG vehicle will be routed to your location. The SAG support may not be able to fix your problem but will provide assistance in getting you to either a rest stop where there will be mechanics on-hand or get you back to Campgaw. Keep in mind that you might have to wait a while for SAG help.
Important: If you have a medical emergency
If you have a medical emergency, call 911. SAG support is not for medical emergencies.
In the event that you do need SAG assistance:
- Move yourself and your bike to a safe area.
- Take note of the nearest: House Number, Street Name and Town, then call the SAG support number for assistance.
- The SAG support telephone number will be on the cuesheets given-out for each ride (be sure to take one!).
