Please Note:

*On Wednesday, September 25, 2013 we were informed that a bridge near the Winslow/Waterford Township border (after the first rest stop on Saturday) was closed by the county due to concerns about structural safety. A detour, adding 1.7 miles to the Traditional 75 mile and 100 mile routes, was added to accommodate this unforeseen last minute situation. Currently this bridge is still closed, with no known reopen date, and the detour is still in effect for 2014.

If you encounter a mechanical problem while riding and need assistance, move completely off to the side of the road and turn your bike upside down.

Thank you to our rest stop sponsors: Subaru, Royal Bank Of Canada, Janney Montgomery Scott, Dimension Data, and NovaCare Rehabilitation

SAG Wagons
Just can’t push another pedal, or just need a ride to the next stop? These van & truck duos rove the route and rest stops. Flip your bike upside down and look for the first SAG wagon to come your way. Give the thumbs-down signal if you want to be picked up. You and your bike will be transported.
NOTE: The trip into the finish line is not always direct. Be patient as we pick up other cyclists in need. If you only want a ride to the next rest stop, let the driver know.  Always remember to thank your driver, who is volunteering his or her time for the weekend to support you.

Personal SAG Vehicles Prohibited
Personal SAG vehicles are not permitted on the route. Please understand our need to cut down on vehicular traffic for YOUR SAFETY. 

Bicycle tagalongs, trailers and carriers will not be permitted per the Society’s minor policy

 

Mechanical SuppORT
Get your bike inspected prior to ride weekend to identify major issues. Sponsoring bike shops will provide minor repairs on the road and at rest stops on ride weekend. View City to Shore sponsoring bike shops.

Communications Team
Communications volunteers are stationed along the route. If you encounter an accident or other emergency, let the communications volunteer know. They are easy to spot: just look for a car with a really big antenna!
Note: These volunteers are there for communication purposes and are not permitted to direct traffic.

Road Marshals
These motorcycle volunteers can be found at "trouble" intersections and along the route. They monitor and guide cyclist traffic, but are not permitted to stop vehicular traffic. When you see a road marshal volunteer, ride with caution. They’ll be wearing orange vests and waving orange flags so you can’t miss them. For more information on volunteering as a road marshal click here.

Medical Support
Emergency medical support travels the entire route in the event that a cyclist may be injured. Help us provide top-notch first aid by completing the back of your rider number. In addition, an emergency number will be printed on the wristband included in your rider number packet. Use this number during the ride if you spot an accident. First aid stations will also be available.

Police AND Communities Who Welcome Us
Every effort is made keep you safe. Where possible, local police have been recruited to help you travel through hazardous intersections and on busy roadways. Be courteous, as they help you travel safely through their communities.

Staff
Bike MS staff and key volunteers will be monitoring the route.
