Full Rules & Shark Ethics

I’m thrilled to welcome you to my hometown and keen that we collectively model the decency and goodwill I believe to be representative of the cycling community I love. We have a few rules for Private Idaho, but more importantly, we have a code of conduct to guide most any decision you might face during the event.

 

Be Good and be a gravel SHARK. That stands for:

 

Safe

  • Abide by the rules of the road and share the road. Your safety is YOUR responsibility and MY number one priority.

  • Keep your speed in check - there are blind turns, oncoming traffic and steep cliffs. 

  • Helmets are mandatory. Period.

    

Honest

  • No personal vehicles or follow cars allowed on course. Aid is allowed by fellow riders or official RPI event staff only.

  • No e-bikes or pedal assist bikes unless you are an event volunteer.

  • Grievances, controversies or complaints should be handled directly and respectfully with the riders involved and the event organizers. Do not assume malice and be generous with the benefit of the doubt.

 

Accountable

  • Do not litter – this includes water bottles and any other non-organic material.

  • Offer assistance if you come across another rider with a medical emergency. Medical assistance is available at aid stations, start/finish areas and on course through the Ketchum Fire Department.

 

Responsible

  • Headphones are discouraged. If you MUST, please keep the left earpiece out so you can hear traffic and other riders.

  • Use the toilets provided. This is a requirement of our permit.

  • Be prepared – the course is remote (no cell service). Carry ample food, water and maintenance supplies. Aid stations are available approximately every 20 miles.

 

Kind

  • Respect all riders, race staff, volunteers and public. 

  • Ride as friends, but race as individuals...unless you are registered as a duo.

 

I’m so glad you’re here! Let’s ride!
