POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Wristbands


We and all of our service providers will rely on your wristband to identify you as a participant. All participants must wear a wristband at all times.

Wristbands must be worn on your person and may not be placed on your bicycle since you can not be individually identified as a participant. This is especially true when you will be in the midst of many other riders who are not participants such as in Chicago on the lakefront bike path.

You should normally need only one wristband. The wristband will normally fade after a few days, especially after being in the shower.

If your wristband breaks or gets lost you will be able to get another one, but we may need to see your ID to verify you as an official participant. Wristbands will be placed directly on you by a staff member and not given to you to put on yourself to prevent wristbands being transferred to non-participants.

You will not receive nor be identified by a specific rider number.

Placement on Your Body
We strongly prefer but do not require that you wear your wristband on your left wrist. We prefer it to be on your wrist as opposed to your ankle because your wrist won't move when you're actually cycling on the road as opposed your ankle and makes it significantly easier for us to quickly and easily identify you.

In addition, we prefer that you wear the wristband on the left side of your body as opposed to the right side since it's significantly easier for us to identify you as we pass you in a support vehicle on your left on the road. If you must put your wristband on your ankle we do require that you keep it above your sock at all times so we can easily identify you as a participant.
