SAG Support and Medical information
Support vehicles will be roaming the routes. Look for the event vehicles in case you need help. An Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) will be riding the Tour de Steamboat route and a second EMT will be in a support vehicle. If you need help at anytime, please let our volunteers know at an aid station or on the route via support vehicles. All routes, except the 116 mile ride, have good cell service along the entire routes. The 116 mile ride has spotty service. The gravel route has service along some of the route. All riders must be prepared with a GPS. Once entering the gravel portion of this ride off Rabbit Ears Pass, the closest support vehicle will be at Gore Pass. Please call 911 in the event of an emergency.
Aid stations will be stocked with the following items:

- M and M’s
In addition peanut butter and jelly sandwiches will be available at the top of Gore Pass for the gravel and 116 mile riders.
Please be prepared to complete basic bike maintenance, i.e. change a flat, tighten a bolt etc. A mechanic will be stationed at the top of Gore Pass for 116 and gravel mile riders.
For the entire event there is very limited street parking. Please park at home or your hotel and ride to the start. Parking is available at the Howelsen Hill parking lot; walk over the core trail bridge to 12th and Yampa. You may also park at the Steamboat Springs Transit Center and ride the bike path to the start.
After the ride
Once you are done with the ride, join us for one heck of a grand finale BBQ party at Little Toots Park. (Additional BBQ tickets are available for purchase for family and friends.) We have plenty of seating, a delicious BBQ dinner, water, locally-brewed beer and the Eriksen Bike Giveaway. If you signed up for the breakfast, we encourage you to still come back to enjoy the music and raffle at the BBQ.
