DIRECTIONS





Parking

There is ample parking at the Fairgrounds. 
Double Century riders should enter on Ave of the Flags and follow the direction of our parking control volunteers.  All other riders may  park in any open lot or on the street.  We will not be controlling entry to any lots other than the the lot at the Marin Center. 
It can be difficult to remember where you parked after a long day in the saddle.  We suggest that mark the location where park by dropping a pin on your mobile phone to guide you back to your car.

Be sure to say thank you  to the CHP and volunteers when you ride by.

Bike Security 




Keep your bike with you when checking in at the registration /check in  area in the morning .  Do not leave your bike unattended.  
We will have a secure bike corral available POST RIDE.  All bikes must be parked in the corral and will be released only to the owner.  Your bike stickers and wristbands must match  to remove your bike from the corral.   
Bike thieves look just like you!   They wear spandex, helmets and cleats and target  bikes that are  unattended and even those that are locked to vehicles.    The bike corral is the safest place for your bike while you enjoy the post ride festivities.

Checklist


We strongly advise you to get your bike tuned up before the ride.  A list of local bike shops that support our ride is available here.
Minimally you should check the tires, brakes and lube your chain.
