Check-In
All riders must check in the morning of the event, except those that selected Valet Service while registering and received their materials in the mail. Valet Service participants may go directly to the start line and do not need to check in. ALL transferring in riders must check-in (even if they received their bib from another person). Transferring riders will be issued a new number–do not ride with a number issued to someone else.
Friday night check-in is for Double Century riders ONLY. Check-in for all other courses takes place on Saturday morning.

Special notes on Start Times
ALL RIDERS – Please review the rest stop open and close times on your map – these are firm times. Plan accordingly.
Courses close at 10:30 PM
50K Riders – If you start the 50 K early, you risk reaching the Nicasio Rest Stop before the 10:30 AM opening and possibly the Post Ride meal at the finish will not be open.
100K Riders – If you start the 100 K early, you risk reaching the Petaluma Rest Stop before the 9:00 AM opening. Additionally, you may be held on west bound Pt. Reyes-Petaluma Rd to prevent creating a dangerous condition with east bound cyclists.
Traditional Century & 200K Riders Must Start by 8 AM! 100k and 50k riders, please wait until your appointed start time.
100 Tam Riders should be on the course at 7am. Note that when a rest stop closes, the course leading up to that rest stop is closed and any remaining riders will be offered a SAG ride or they will be on their own. No further support will be offered. This is to allow us to focus attention on the remaining portions of the course.
