COVID Safety

Every participant and volunteer must bring either a negative PCR result test, taken within 3 days of September 24th (or September 25th for one-day riders), or bring your own rapid test kit and take it immediately upon arriving at Check-In in a dedicated area. If you do not bring a negative PCR test result, you must arrive 30 mins early with your own rapid test. Visit our FAQ page to view full COVID safety and testing requirements.

Medical

Volunteer medical personnel will be on-hand to provide basic medical services. In case of emergency, support vehicles will provide transportation for medical care. However, you’ll be responsible for the cost of medical care and transportation beyond the emergency services provided by our volunteer medical personnel.

Rest Stops

Checkpoints with volunteers are set up every 10 to 20 miles. Take a break, use the restroom, snap a team photo, refill your water and refuel with plenty of snacks and other refreshments!

Mechanical

It’s a good idea to get your bike tuned up a few weeks before the ride. Since it is a weekend-long event, the Trek isn’t a great time to try out a new bike or make major modifications to your current one. That said, there will be mechanics on-site and SAG vehicles along the route ready to assist and provide basic repairs when possible. Just keep in mind that you may be asked to pay for the cost of parts. It’s also a good idea to carry some basic tools and equipment with you for minor repairs, such as a flat tire.

Route Support & Sweep

Volunteer personnel are available along the route each day of the ride (view routes here). They’re there to assist you and make sure the route is as safe and well-marked as possible. If you need assistance, simply raise your hand high with a closed fist and a support vehicle will be over to help you. Make sure to also stick to the marked route. It’ll make the Sweep Captain’s job easier!
