Baggage Transportation To and From Stopping Town Locations

Baggage LoadingBaggage UnloadingLimitations


Baggage Loading
We will load baggage from our main lodging site/starting location onto our vehicles first then stop at the supported hotel to pick up baggage from there.

On multi-day events, most participants consistently stay at either the main lodging site or supported hotel every night during the entire event. Accordingly most baggage to be delivered the supported hotel will be on top of the baggage to be delivered the main lodging site/ending location.

You should remove any detachable straps and store them in your bag before loading so they don't snag any other bags or gear and accidentally get ripped off the bag.

Baggage Unloading
When we arrive at the next stopping town we deliver baggage at the supported hotel first then at the main lodging site/ending location. Having baggage to be delivered the supported hotel on top makes it significantly easier and faster for us to identify and unload it at the supported hotel and helps ensure that all baggage is delivered to the correct location.

Your baggage will be unloaded as close as possible to the specific ending location of each day's ride so it is easily accessible and you won't have to carry it very far. We will attempt to place baggage items indoors or under shelter to prevent your items from getting wet if it is raining or melting if it is very bright and sunny but we cannot guarantee we will be able to do this so please plan and pack accordingly.

Limitations
We will only deliver baggage to the ride main lodging site/ending location and supported hotel in each stopping town according to our logistic plans and not to any other location on the route such as rest stops. Accordingly, you will not have access to your baggage until it is unloaded at the ride ending location.

We will not transport baggage between locations within a specific stopping town or provide any type of baggage delivery or transportation service to any other location, including any hotel that is not the supported hotel.

Baggage will only be delivered to the supported hotel when our vehicles initially arrive in each stopping town and will only be picked up from the supported hotel as our vehicles depart each stopping town.

Baggage will only be delivered to the main lodging site/ending location after baggage has been delivered to the supported hotel in that stopping town.

Baggage will always be picked up from the main lodging site/starting location before it is picked up from the supported hotel in each stopping town.

THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO OUR BAGGAGE TRANSPORTATION LIMITATIONS FOR ANY REASON AT ANY TIME.
