Please take the time to ensure your

had issues with tires, and general maintenance issues on the last rides. Safety
if Critical when doing any long distance riding such as the Cannonball Rides.
You don't want to be left stranded in the middle of nowhere do you? Ask your
starting point to give your bike a once over, it's well worth it to know your
bike is ready for the Cannonball!
I hope everyone enjoys the next series of rides. New maps will be posted very soon - I'm on it! :)
NEW - Cannonball Rides Limited Edition Hats
I kept getting emails from riders asking about hats, so I brought a few dozen in for riders. When you order a certificate I can ship it within the box to save on additional postage charges.
Many said they don't always wear the same jacket with their Cannonball patches and wanted this option!

Cannonball 500 is not a race. Not a single person WINS when safety is not your first consideration.

You must finish where you started to complete the loop within the given time. We assume no liability whatsoever before, during or after the ride.
