Important Participant Information

Helmets and bike lights are MANDATORY. If you were in the first 200 sign ups you will receive some novelty bike lights but we still recommend you have additional lights on the bike.

Start Location
Sunset Hills Plaza/Home Depot Parking lot
10890 Sunset Hills Plaza

Check in (9pm to 9:45pm)
We are asking that each person come to the check in tent prior to the event. This is when you will receive your bike lights (first 200 to sign up) and two drink tokens for post ride drinks. You will also be asked to sign a waiver with emergency contact information and put on a wrist band. We ask that you arrive no later than 9:45pm so you have ample time to check in, get your bike ready, and use the portable bathrooms if needed.

Ride Start TIme (10:00pm)
The ride will roll out at 10:00pm with a police car as the lead. As a reminder, this is a cruise, and not a race. Do NOT attempt to pass the lead police car. The left lane of Watson Road will be closed going East bound for our riders designated with cones. Please stay in this lane until the turn around point. We will have additional police units closing intersections as the ride goes down Watson. While we don’t anticipate needing to stop riders please follow police instructions. The final riders will be followed by a police vehicle, ambulance unit, and a SAG vehicle.

Turn Around
The halfway (approximately 5 miles) point/our turn around is the former Here Today store located in Shrewsbury. At this point, all riders will be asked to wait until the last rider has arrived to turn around and come back to Home Depot. Please note, that unfortunately we will not have any portable bathrooms at this site. The ride will resume when the lead police car starts back on Watson. Riders will enter into the left lane of West bound Watson to return to Home Depot.

SAG
If you would have a mechanical issue or need to drop out of the ride, please do so by going to the side of the road, being mindful of car traffic as you do so. We will have vehicles on the ride available to pick you up and take you back to the start if needed.

Post Ride
We invite you to enjoy live music, 2 post ride drinks, and ice cream treat!
