ALL RIDERS MUST SIGN THE ELECTRONIC OR A HARD COPY OF THE WAIVER.  This means if your friend didn't sign the waiver you can't pick up their stuff.

SAG (Support and Gear) AND MECHANICAL SUPPORT -  We will have SAG vehicles on the course to provide in route support for mechanical issues and rescue fatigued riders.  We will also have onsite mechanics for last minute adjustments, but they are not miracle workers or doing tune-ups on bikes.  They will have a small supply of tubes, tires, and other items for sale.  Please be sure to bring some cash or credit card for these purchases.  There is no fee for the adjustments or installs.

Additionally - the Trek Bicycle Store has agreed to provide complimentary pre-ride inspections at their store in advance of the ride.  You can stop by their store in the days or weeks before the ride and they will inspect your bike and make repair or tune-up suggestions.  The inspection is free. Actual costs for repairs or parts will vary, but they have a $25 off special for any Annual Peark Performance tune up package. They suggest bringing your bike in 2-3 weeks before the actual ride to make sure your bike is ready to roll!
