     SAG vehicles #1 & #4,  follow the riders, pull over frequently to let other traffic pass.     
     SAG vehicles #2 & #3  travel at the pace of vehicle traffic, not bicycle riders, passing when safe.  Oscillate between assigned rest stops.
     SAG vehicles report first to Burnsville Town Center for supplies:  Repair parts, Water.  Bring your own band aids and gauze, if possible.
      Rest stops will have bathroom facilities, energy food, and water supplied.

    Changes for next year:  1)  Hams in all SAG vehicles.   2)  Check out communications on route before R. S. #1
