Your luggage will be transported between overnight locations via our box van.
We will be staying in churches and a community center. Overnight locations can be found on the lodging page. You will need to bring your own pillow, sleeping bag, and/or air mattress. Thermarests are also popular. Please contact us if you need suggestions.
Each location will have showers; however, we expect a large group so patience is necessary.
Breakfast and dinner will be provided each day and the SAG vans will carry snacks and liquid. But each rider is responsible for their lunch, so make sure that you have money on hand for this expense. We will pass by numerous “hole in the wall” places that serve great food!
