Ride the Rockies will transport one bag per cyclist (max weight 70 pounds) throughout the Tour, moving it from event HQ to event HQ in each of the overnight town’s we visit. However, Ride The Rockies does not transport luggage to outside lodging, such as hotels. Riders are responsible for filling out luggage tags with necessary information. The ideal luggage is a non-framed waterproof durable duffel bag, please no wheeled bags or external framed backpacks. Trash bags are not allowed, as they are hard to maneuver and dangerous for our baggage staff to load. Along with clothing for the week, your luggage allowance weight includes your tent and sleeping bag (if camping).
Each day during the Tour there are Two baggage trucks; early and late. The early truck will leave immediately after the start window opens (approximately 7:00am). The late truck leaves that day’s overnight town directly following the close of the start window (i.e. if the start window is from 7:00am -9:00am then the late truck will leave at 9:00am). Riders may drop their bags the whole time the start window is open. Afternoon pick-up will be located at the designate baggage area at event HQ in the overnight town.
Please note that RTR baggage service does not coordinate with Summit Cycle Solutions for baggage pick-ups/drop-offs at hotels. If you have SCS baggage service but would like to have a day bag in the luggage truck for your arrival at HQ, you can use your RTR luggage tag for that reason. You are responsible for putting your day bag on the RTR baggage trucks.
Additional Luggage Tag
As noted, your camping equipment (tent, sleeping bag, etc.) is part of your 70-pound baggage limit. If you feel that you need 2 or more bags, you may purchase an additional luggage tag for $40.
