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
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
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
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
threatening medical condition and/or transport
your bike to a bike shop if it cannot
ridden due to a mechanical failure that occurred
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
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
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
trike until it
is transported - our staff
will not take this responsibility.
