Do you offer digital course maps?

We will be using Ride with GPS, a cycling navigation app. Its features include audible voice navigation and shareable live tracking. The app is available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

Do I have to wear a helmet to participate?

Yes. BayCare Clinic’s community wellness initiative, BayCare Clinic Bikes, promotes bicycling as a healthy, family-friendly, and safe activity. Helmet use when biking is a large part of our advocacy.


What should I bring with me for the ride?

Bring things that make sense but don’t overburden yourself. We suggest a water bottle, a bike pump, spare tubes and a spare tire. Snacks might come in handy between rest stops. Feel free to pack your preferred snacks. Bring a jacket in case of bad weather or cool weather.


I’m new to biking. What is SAG?

SAG means “support and gear.” SAG vehicles will travel all four routes. You will be provided a number to call SAG for help. The SAG vehicle driver can bring you back to the start/finish line if necessary.


I’m not great with maps. What happens if I get lost along the route?

Call the SAG number if you think you’re lost. The SAG vehicle can pick you up and get you back on track or redirect you to where you’re supposed to be.


What can I expect at the rest stops?

Grab snacks and drinks. Use the toilet if needed. Feel free to rest.


Are showers available after the ride?

Yes. Riders are welcome to shower at the East Side Y, 1740 S. Huron Road, on ride day. Just show your BayCare Clinic Century wristband and a photo ID and sign in at the front desk. You must bring a towel. There is no towel service. The East Side Y is roughly 2 miles southeast of the BayCare Clinic Century start/finish area. It closes at 6 p.m. 


Will the ride be canceled if it rains?

The ride takes place rain or shine. It will be canceled only if extreme weather or an unexpected public safety incident poses a threat to riders’ safety. Decisions on cancellation will be made by BayCare Clinic staff after consulting with public safety officials.


How will the proceeds from the ride be used?

The proceeds will benefit the BayCare Clinic Foundation, whose mission is to provide people in northeastern Wisconsin with improved health and livelihood.
