  4. You can ride/run solo or as a group
  5. This is a self supported venture, no calling for help (“can you bring me a chain, I am at…”), you must get there under your own power and by your own devices. You can accept help from fellow cyclists and runners. You can purchase items along the way if you need them but you cannot phone family and friends to bring you things during the ride. You can cache water and other supplies along your route ahead of time (mostly applicable to the runners) but this must me done by you
  6. Respect the land and wildlife, pack out your garbage, and boil or treat water before drinking.

  11. You must document your ride or run and provide pictures and an essay of your adventure. This will be recorded on the Operacion Muerto site – this is after all also a talking organization. Your ride attempt will not count if you do not submit a minimum of 15 pictures and 200 words describing the entire ride or one part of the ride.

Lonely Stage Challenge Rules

Here’s how it works:

  1. Ride alone (original rule) – NO EXCEPTIONS – okay one exception, you can ride with someone you are isolated with, but no drafting. Updated rule – You can “ride” with one other but must keep the 2 meter physical distance when riding side by side, and 4 meters inline.
  2. There are 4 stages, you need to complete all 4 stages, unless you don’t want to (you can be like one of those specialist riders in the tour de france riders)
  3. You only get 1 attempt at each stage
  4. Start May 8 and finish by June 19
  5. Record your time for each stage, combine all 4 stage times for your overall time.
  6. Use whatever you want to record your time.
  7. Solo rides prefered (except with iso-friends), try not announce your ride days and start times.
  8. If you encounter another “competitor” on the course drop them, or get dropped
  9. Don’t cheat or bend the rules, if you do you’re a dick, don’t be a dick.
