Supported Hotel Baggage
We will provide baggage delivery
service to and from our supported
hotel in each stopping town.
Pre-registration is required for each time you would like your baggage delivered
to and picked up from the supported hotel. Having a list of participants' supported
hotel baggage delivery needs significantly helps
us to make
sure that all baggage is delivered properly and assists us in logistics planning
before our events.
Supported Hotel Baggage Delivery Tags
When both a supported hotel and a main lodging site or ending location are
available in a stopping town, each baggage item to be delivered to and/or
by two separate
supported hotel baggage delivery tags so we can easily identify
which bags should be delivered to the supported hotel. Your baggage
will never be delivered to the supported hotel unless you specifically
indicate the need to to do so through the use of the supported hotel
tags. The tags will be a different color than the main
tour wristband and will not serve any other purpose other than for hotel
The only exception to this policy is if our ending location is directly
at the supported hotel itself. In this case you will not need
to attach a hotel baggage delivery tag to your baggage because it will already
be delivered there.
We require two separate tags on each piece of baggage in case one
comes off in transit and also to make it easier for us to identify which
baggage should be delivered to and/or picked up from the supported hotel.
The tags should be placed as far apart from each other as possible to minimize
the chance that both would come off at the same time. We will supply the
supported hotel baggage delivery tags in the
registration materials so we can consistently
identify the baggage going to the supported hotel.
It will be your responsibility to make sure that every piece of your baggage
items has the two required baggage delivery tags on it every day. Though
unlikely, if a supported hotel baggage delivery tag can comes off your bag
in transit, simply let a staff member know and we will give you a new one.
In the extremely unlikely event that both tags come off we may still be
able to identify where your bag should go based on your personal information
on your baggage item and our previous experience with your specific baggage
item. We may also call you on your cell phone to verify your baggage delivery
plans, but if there is any doubt your bag will be delivered to the main lodging
site and/or ending location since this is where the majority of participants
will have their bags delivered.
Participant Baggage Pick Up
Your baggage will be waiting for you when you arrive at the supported
hotel each day. Generally they will be at or near the front desk, otherwise
the desk clerk will show you where they are.
Vehicle Loading in the Morning
Your baggage must be packed and ready to be picked up from the supported hotel
by the route opening time. This will give you enough
time to eat the continental style breakfast
and bike over to the ride starting location if the starting location if
You will generally leave your baggage at or near the front desk, otherwise
the desk clerk will show you where to leave it. If a rolling baggage cart
is available, please
leave your baggage on it and not just
on the floor. This will greatly help our staff quickly
load your bags
vehicles and help ensure that we deliver them
to the next stopping town before you arrive as well as saving wear and tear
on our staff.
