Rider check-in will take place Thursday October 22 and Friday October 23 only. The check-in will be in the ALYN parking lot and riders will not be allowed to enter the hospital.

Riders will be sent a sign-up sheet to reserve a spefic time for check-in. While a mechanic will be available for emergency repairs, riders should bring their bikes ready to be loaded onto the truck. Please have your local mechanic go over your bike before you bring it to check-in.
