Baggage Transportation

One bag per cyclist (70 lbs. max.) will be transported throughout the Tour. A non-framed waterproof durable duffel bag is suggested. Trash bins are not allowed. This type of luggage is hard to maneuver and is dangerous for our baggage staff to load. This one bag must include your tent, sleeping bag and clothing for the week.

There are three baggage trucks; early, middle and late. The early and middle trucks leave when they are full. The late truck leaves the host community at 9:00 a.m. sharp. Cyclists may drop off bags starting at 5:15 a.m. and are responsible for loading their own bags onto the truck. Afternoon pick-up will be located at the designated baggage area at the headquarter site in the destination town.
RTR baggage service does not coordinate with Sherpa Packer or Summit Cycle Solutions for baggage pick-ups/drop-offs.

SCS baggage transfer
For a fee, RTR event attendees have the option to book luggage transportation through the SCS booking platform. This is the ideal product for those who book lodging through SCS or might be staying at unique properties such as VRBO, air B&B’s etc.


  • Bag pickups start at 5:30 a.m., and end at 9:00 a.m. SCS will have three trucks running in circulation for drop offs/pick ups from lodging properties
  • If you book lodging outside of SCS (not recommended), then we will need to know your pick-up/drop-off locations. You may note these locations on the checkout form. Attendee accommodations must be within 10 miles of each host town entertainment site.
  •  Bags may not exceed 75lbs. One bag per booking.

SCS Payment & Cancellation Policies:
Payment in full is required at the time of booking as inventory is live. Cancellations shall incur a 20% administrative fee on the total reservation amount (including taxes).

NO baggage transportation cancellations shall be allowed after March 15th, 2017.
