Breakfast Served by Us


Breakfast served by us will be continental style. If the main lodging site is at a school facility, breakfast will usually be served in the cafeteria area, otherwise it will be served in a large multi-purpose type meeting room. There will be tables and chairs at all facilities for you to be able to sit down and eat at.

A rest stop will also be set up directly at breakfast to stock up on snack items and sports drinks for the upcoming ride.

If we are doing a group departure, our breakfast will be served up until 15 minutes before the route opening time to ensure you have enough time to pack your gear up and get ready to ride.

Coffee
We will have plenty of hot, very fully caffeinated coffee available at breakfast (you wouldn't believe how often we get asked this). OK we know coffee's not the greatest thing to drink before you ride, but you will be very tired and our mornings so start so very, very early. Don't worry, we won't let anybody know you had a cup or two. And we always need to drink a couple cups to get going ourselves.

Hot Breakfast Items
Unfortunately we will not be able to provide any hot breakfast items (bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes, etc.) If you want any breakfast hot items you will need to get them yourself either at a restaurant in stopping town or in one of the towns we pass through on the road.

Toasters
Regrettably, we will not be able to offer toasters to toast bagels for three major reasons.

First, using toasters would take too much time for every participant to be able to do in a reasonable amount of time in the morning. and we simply cannot supply enough toasters to accommodate all participants.

Second, toasters suck a LOT of electricity and if we had too many toasters going at the same time we could very likely blow a fuse. Not only would we have to find the fuse box or call the facility maintenance people to come (if they were even available that early in the morning) we also do not know what else we could blow out with that fuse (like the bathroom lights).

Third, we would have to wait a long time before the toasters cooled down enough for us to safely transport them in our support vehicles. All in the morning when our number one priority is getting our stuff together to hit the road as early as possible!
