Baggage


Baggage Transportation

Ride The Rockies will transport one bag per cyclist (70 lbs. max.) throughout the Tour from HQ to HQ (not hotels). 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 and sleeping bag (if camping), 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 5:30 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 headquarters site in the destination town. RTR baggage service does not coordinate with Summit Cycle Solutions for baggage pick-ups/drop-offs.

SCS Baggage Transfer

For an additional fee, RTR event attendees have the option to book luggage transportation through the Summit Cycle Solutions booking platform. This is the ideal product for those who book lodging through SCS or might be staying at unique properties such as VRBO, Airbnb’s etc.

Summit Cycle Solutions provides luggage transportation to and from hotels each day. Customers lodging a full week with Summit Cycle Solutions are eligible for one discounted bag transfer service ($115). Customers may purchase additional bags as desired ($139).

Non-S.C.S. Hotel Service: Not lodging with S.C.S. but still want your bags transported to/from a hotel? Please check out our Non-S.C.S. luggage transport service ($159). Due to a limited amount of available lodging on June 14th, S.C.S. will be making a special exception to deliver luggage to/from V.R.B.O.’s on June 14th only. Please note that June 14th V.R.B.O. service is a second-tier delivery service and ONLY available to participants purchasing the Non-S.C.S. Hotel Service.

Day Bag Service: Summit Cycle Solutions will be providing a “day bag” service for a quick change of clothes at the end of each ride ($56). Participants may leave this customized day bag at the S.C.S. tent, OR with his/her luggage each morning. The day bag will then be routed to the finish in the next town.
