Packet Pick-Up: The Four Points by Sheraton in Wakefield will be hosting packet pick-up on Saturday, May 20 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Our volunteers cannot accept donations that day, so we are only asking that riders at the $200 minimum (or Gran Fondo riders who have paid the full registration fee) to pick-up at Four Points by Sheraton. If you are at the minimum but still have donations, you can check-in at Four Points, get your packet, and drop off your donations at Express Check-In on Sunday.

Introducing the Gravel Ride - New for 2017!
A gravel, or adventure ride, is a ride that consists of a mix of pavement and gravel roads and light trails. Typically, riders use a bike that is a modified road bike (fatter, larger volume tires), a cyclocross bike, or what is now becoming a segment of bicycles known as gravel or Randonee bikes. These bikes have disc brakes and large volume tires with some knobs for traction. A mountain bike with 29" wheels would be a good choice also, but might make it difficult to keep pace on paved sections. Visit our Route page for full details.
If you're up for this new challenge, sign up and select one of the "100k Gravel Ride" participant options. If you have already registered for the Tour and would like to switch to the gravel ride, email Tara at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandy at email@example.com.
