Below you will find the locations, dates, and times of our bike and boat check-in/drop-off. Please be aware that you may have some difficulty finding parking. While we will have permission on race morning/day to park in certain areas and block others we do not have permission to do the same for the days prior. We ask that you park legally and get in and out fast so that there’s a flow to check-in/drop-off. Be quick.
Bike Check-In/Drop-Off Information
When you arrive at the location below during the designated times, the day prior to the event, be sure to move quickly. Parking will likely be tight and packed so get in and out as fast as you can please. When you approach the area there should be a staff/volunteer to help check you in. They will take your name and race number and check you in. Please remember that in order to check your bike in you MUST pickup your packet first so that you have your bike frame stickers on each side of your bike fork.
Once checked in, you will find your designated bike rack and assigned number on that rack. Whether your bike has a kickstand or you rack it by the seat, you MUST make sure that the bike is at your number and that it is facing outwards. This means that as you stand and look at your number on the metal bike rack your bike is in front of it (not blocking the isle) and your front wheel is closest to you. If you do not have a kickstand your bike should be mounted on your number hanging either by the seat’s rear or nose. Your bike should be facing out the same direction as the sticker on the rack. You are NOT permitted to leave anything besides your bike. No helmet, towel, shoes, hats, water bottles or anything besides just your bike. All other accessory items must be brought and set out in the morning before the start of the event. Be sure you know parking, transition, and start times so you have plenty of time to do it all.
Please do not park anywhere that will block Anderson (it’s an open street before event day) or the fire station.

Boat/Board Check-In/Drop-Off Information
We are in the process of hammering out the final details of the exact location you will check your boat the day before and pickup it up after. Check back to this page in the weeks/months to come. The start and finish of the paddle course are both now at Green’s Park. The course has changed for many reasons but is a big improvement being at Green’s Park. We are not yet sure where athletes will check/drop off their boats the day before and where they will pick them up after the event. Worst case you will drop-off and pickup from Green’s Park directly. This “could” result in a long line and backups on Lapeer Road both days. To alleviate this we are trying to workout a way to drop both your bike and boat off in the transition area and we would then move all boats over to Green’s Park in time for the start the next morning. Then after the event as people finish we would move them back to the transition area so that they are there for pickup after the event when people claim their bikes. While this creates a lot of work for us it will ensure there are no big backups on Lapeer. We ware working towards a solution like this and will let you know as soon as we have a solution.

Equipment Pickup Post Race
We are working out how to move all kayaks from the boat exit over to transition so that everyone can pickup there equipment in one location after the event. We are not sure if it’s possible for us to move 250 kayaks in 1-2 hours but as soon as we have a solution (as mentioned above) we will let you know.
