Only one canister per rider, imagine the debating on which to take even if they ride out with a few friends....LOL There might be punches thrown
ohhh, your evil
Although, I do like the idea, as it proves a couple of things:
1) that the rider actually made this check point, and proof is a returned sealed canister (which can be opened back at camp, in front of all the other riders, proving to all that the canister was not tampered with)
2) That the route was followed, and therefore rider can follow directions and follow GPS tracks (For those that are GPS challenged, this is great motivation to learn about your GPS and how to follow it....)
I would also suggest that routes be held in secret until the night before the ride, so that nobody has an opportunity to really think out a shortcut....essentially leveling the playing field for those instate and out of state.....
maybe, i'm overthinking this.......
either way, we have some time to really toss some ideas around and make it an epic event.......
