Yes. Map My Ride digital maps for all four routes are available on our Event Info page. We also have printable PDF route maps on our Event Info page.

 

What should I bring with me for the ride?

Bring things that make sense but don’t overburden yourself. We suggest a bike pump, spare tubes and a spare tire. A water bottle and snack might come in handy between rest stops. A jacket is advisable 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?

Please familiarize yourself with your phone’s map application. On Apple phones, this is Apple Maps. On Android phones, this is Google Maps. Should you need assistance on ride day, our Century Support Call Center is ready to dispatch a support vehicle to your location. Use your phone and its map app to figure out where you are. Then call us at the number on your yellow wristband. The SAG vehicle can pick you up and get you back on track or redirect you to where you’re supposed to be.

 

What’s on the menu for ride day?

  • Before the ride, we’ve offered bananas, mini-muffins and coffee at the start/finish area.
  • At the rest stops, we’ve offered bananas, oranges, bagels, cream cheese, peanut butter, cheese sticks, peanut butter-filled pretzels, pickles, oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate chip cookies, granola bars, trail mix, water, Gatorade and GU. There also will be hot soup for riders on the 60- and 100-mile routes. (Menus vary at each rest stop. Riders going longer distances will have more choices.)
  • All riders will enjoy a picnic-style celebration after the ride.

What can I expect at the rest stops?

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

 

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.

 

Can I ride a different route after registering?

Riders on the 100- and 60-mile routes may switch to a longer or shorter route by informing ride staff at the packet pickup.

 

Riders on the 15- and 30-mile routes cannot switch routes.

 

I’ve registered, but I can’t make it this year. Can I use my registration next year?

No. Registration is for this year only. Those who register but don’t ride cannot carry over their registration from one year to another. There are no refunds.

 

Can I transfer my registration to someone else?

Yes. Ride staff must be notified by email by the last Friday of May to update the event’s database. The new rider must pick up the packet, use the existing materials and ride the selected route. Any financial considerations for transfers are between the riders.

 

How will the proceeds from the ride be used?

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