POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Transportation to the Next Stopping Town


Transportation to the next stopping town/ending location will primarily occur from the rest stops. You may have to wait until the last rider has departed the rest stop and the rest stop has been packed up before being transported to the next stopping town/ending location. You may also need to travel with the SAG driver as he performs his other responsibilities.

Though unlikely, if there are more participants than can fit in the SAG vehicle at one time you may need to wait at the rest stop while the SAG driver transports other participants to the next stopping town and comes back to get you. No one who is unable to ride, however, will not be transported to the next stopping town or left on the road.

On our way into the next stopping town from the road we will transport you to the supporting hospital if you cannot walk or ride there on your own due to a non life threatening medical condition and/or transport your bike to the supporting bike shop if it cannot be ridden due to a mechanical failure that occurred on the road and cannot be fixed otherwise.

Due to logistic constraints, we cannot transport you in a support vehicle and "leapfrog" you to a subsequent point on the route in order to make up time and distance.

Transportation of Trikes
Participants who ride trikes (any bicycle with three or more wheels) must provide their own on road support for them at all times because we cannot guarantee that we will be able to easily or quickly transport them in any support vehicle at any time in case of mechanical breakdown.

If we absolutely must transport a trike off the road, we will charge an additonal $100.00 fee PLUS $1.00 per mile travelled round trip due before the trike is transported because of the significant amount of extra work involved. Transporting the trike will be the lowest priority item to do and we may not be able to transport it until very, very late at night. It will also be the participant's responsibility to watch their trike until it is transported since our staff will not take this responsibility.
