Theoretically, the value of 1 bitGOLD will be equal to the value of 1 oz of gold in the real world. Noone is obliged to exchange 1oz of gold for 1 bitgold (the peg is not maintained by any central entity) but market agents have the incentives to maintain the peg.
Off-ramps (agent that offers to exchange 1bitgold for 1oz of physical gold) will allow you to directly "redeem" physical gold. Or you can go the indirect route bitgold-> bts (-> btc) -> usd -> physical gold.
Hope it helps :)

There aren't any delegates focused specifically on bitgold yet.
