Many Pirate riders decide to ride the Bear and may or may not utilize the rest stop services. OCW will no longer tolerate this practice. Those riders pirating the ride and using the services that OCW provides to the paying riders can only be stopped by the paying riders that are supporting the ride. They may be utilizing your food stops, causing longer lines at the Porta Potties, in other words stealing the services that OCW spends for the ability to put the ride on. We pay for permits, porta potties, and the RS captains help manage and maintain the Rest Stop supplies. 2012 seems to have elevated Pirate riders to a new level. Although they may not utilize the services at the RS's they will cause increased traffic and congestion on the route. The pirates can ride any other Saturday but choose this day since there may be services available on the route. This can no longer be allowed, if so municipalites may curtail the permit issued due to the increase in traffic congestion that doesn't match the participants information that we provide them to local law enforcement and communities along the route.
