We suggest that each rider have a bicycle in excellent condition, carry 2 water bottles, and tools. Wear hot weather clothing and a helmet (mandatory) and carry extra money. Be prepared for cool weather on Kaiser Pass, last year (2017) it hailed. Also, gearing of 36 X 32-36 or a triple is highly recommended.

Lights/Energy Drinks

(Climb To Kaiser Riders Only)

If you expect to finish after dark, you are required to have lights (front and back). Riders will be pulled from the course after 8:30 p.m. without lights. (NO EXCEPTION)

Lights may be dropped off at registration. Please have lights in a paper grocery bag with your name and ride number listed. All bags will be taken to the Shaver Lake rest stop. It is each rider’s responsibility to pick-up their lights, as unclaimed items may not be returned after the ride.

Also, if you would like energy drink powder brought up to Shaver Lake, place in brown paper bags with your name and number listed. (No cans, please). Any items not picked up will be thrown out after 7 p.m. There will be a separate drop-off area at registration for your drink mix.

After the Ride

We will have an after-ride lunch/dinner beginning at 2:00 p.m. for all participants. Additional meal tickets are available for purchase. ($10.00, Pre-ordered only)

Friday Night

Friday night the City of Clovis will feature a Farmer’s Market in Old Town Clovis from 6-8 p.m. If you would rather eat at a restaurant, these are a few within walking distance from several of the hotels.
