Along the course:
Route Support: SAG Vehicles (Support and Gear) will be offering support to the Tour riders on every route. If you have stopped along the roadside and need assistance, make sure to flag them down. They can provide cyclists with roadside assistance and have the capability to call for medical or emergency assistance anywhere along the route.

Very important - If you have stopped and DO NOT need assistance, please give them a 'thumbs up' to prevent them from having to stop when it is not necessary. Minors must be accompanied by an adult in the SAG vehicle.

Bike Route Marshals: Our official Bike Route Marshals will be wearing PINK bibs and bright helmet antennas as they ride the routes to ensure riders are following the “rules of the road.” They are also there to help you if you need anything!

Course Closing: The routes will close at the following times:
Route: Closes:
101-Mile 3:30 PM
63-Mile 2:30 PM
50-Mile 1:30 PM
25-Mile 12:00 PM
10-Mile 11:30 AM

There is no support after the close time. Please ensure you have trained to be able to finish your route in time. As late afternoon approaches, one of our SAG vehicles will ask you if you would like to be brought to the finish.

Rest Stops: There are seven rest stops conveniently located at regular intervals along the route. You’ll be able to take a rest, get fruit and/or a snack, sip on Gatorade, and refill your water bottles. Port-o-Potties/Restroom facilities will be available at ALL Rest Stops!
