Packet Pick Up
Rider packet-pick up will be available Friday, September 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. as well as the morning of the ride, Sunday, September 26, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. in an effort to spread out participant arrival and provide for appropriate social distancing in our lobby area at MCEC. We also ask that participants send only one member of the household to pick up packets for the group when possible.

Parking/Check-in Procedures
All riders, no exceptions, must first go to the COVID Screening Station after they park. The station will be located in a tent outside the main entrance (Door 1E). Once you have turned in your screening form, had your temperature taken and received your wristband, you may return to your car to get your bike, enter the building for the apparel sale and to pick up your rider packet, or proceed to the bike corral. Carpooling is discouraged to and from the event with anyone outside of your household. If you ride your bike to the event you will be asked to park your bike outside the bike corral before going to the bike corral or the COVID screening tent.

Wristband
All riders, volunteers, staff and vendors must have a wristband on in order to enter the bike corral and participate in, or work at this event. No exceptions. The wristband is only given out after you pass the mandatory temperature screening.
