- Over 30,000 people have made the week trip with one 65 pound bag, you can too!
- Your baggage will be transported by Interstate Distributor Company.
- Each rider may bring one bag (yes, really).
- Your bag must not weigh more than 65 pounds, so please take the time to weigh your bag and pack accordingly. (We ask you to be considerate of the porters who will be handling the bags each day.)
- The 65-pound weight limit includes your tent and sleeping bag. Riders may not lash their bags together. Lawn chairs, golf bags or any other items that will not fit in one bag will not be transported.
Participants must pick up and deliver their own gear from the baggage trucks at each overnight camping area. Truck trailers are numbered and fitted with stairs. Remember to note the trailer in which you load your gear so you can locate it easily at the next site.
Local volunteers are usually available to carry bags from the trucks to the campsite and, again in the morning, from the campsite to the trucks. We encourage you to tip the porters ($2 per bag is suggested), as this benefits local volunteer groups.
Baggage Truck Departure
Baggage must be loaded by 8:30 a.m. each morning and unloaded by 8 p.m. each night. Riders who stay in a motel are responsible for getting their bags to and from the baggage trucks by the designated times.
Make Your Bag Easy to Identify
Although you will receive a baggage ID tag to match your rider number, please mark your gear bag with additional personal identification tags. A distinctive tag, such as fluorescent tape or a colorful ribbon (don’t use pink, we use that for bus bags), will also help you locate your bag among the 2,199 others.
