Fwd: RC: TOP TEN TIPS!!/water bottles
Ride Campers: It used to be when Vetting In at the Tevis all water bottles
had to be removed from saddle. All Riders are weighed in. Same thing if
weight was taken again later in the ride. I always thought this was a AERC
Rule? Is there a fast uniform Rule on this? Vetting In has nothing to do
with Best Condition but establishes a beginning parameter for those who do
stand for Best Condition at the end of the ride. Now I am curious. Hope
