Sparta Ice Arena

Saturday Morning

All participants must arrive at the Sparta transportation staging point by 10:00 am Saturday morning.

The check in and loading process will consist of checking in, attaching our identification tags to your bicycle and baggage, and loading your bicycle and loading your baggage.

  • Click Here for more information about departures and arrivals for our transportation services.

When you check in you will receive all of your registration materials for the tour (cue sheets, maps, etc.) That way you will be able to review them as you travel to the start of the tour, and not having to check you in after you arrive will speed the process of unloading your bike and baggage and also checking in other participants initially arriving at the start of the event.

Participants Staying at the Supported Hotel in Sparta
If you are staying at the supported hotel in Sparta on Friday night and DO NOT have your own car or alternate means of transportation you should register for our supported hotel baggage delivery service so we can pick up your baggage directly directly from your hotel. You will need to leave your bags at the front desk of the hotel by 9:00 am and bike over to the transportation staging site on your own.

Participants Staying at the Supported Hotel in Port Byron
If you are staying at the supported hotel in Port Byron, every individual baggage item to be delivered to a supported hotel must have a supported hotel baggage identification tag attached to it before they can be loaded. These tags will be supplied in your registration materials.

Friday Evening Early Bike Drop Off
We will also be set up at the transportation staging point from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Friday evening to load bicycles early.

Taking advantage of this service could be very convenient for you. You won't have to deal with the hassle of transporting both your bike and your baggage early Saturday morning and can avoid all the confusion of everyone else who will be arriving Saturday morning. By pre-loading as many bikes as possible beforehand, it will also help assure a much quicker departure time for everyone from Prairie du Chien on Saturday morning.

There are a couple limitations to this new service:

  • We can only accommodate upright style bikes only. We cannot accept any oversized bicycles (recumbents, tandems, etc.)
  • You can only drop off your bicycle early, not your baggage. This is because we can store your bicycle securely locked up inside our truck but not your baggage since it will be transported underneath our coach busses. Besides, you'll probably need your baggage Friday night anyways!

Both outdoor tent and indoor sleeping bag and air mattress camping will be available at the Prairie du Chien main lodging site on Friday evening!

Long Term Parking
Long term parking for the entire tour will also be directly at the transportation staging point so you won't need to carry your bicycle or baggage very far!
