Travel Info

What to Pack
We have limited space in our transport trucks so the Tour provides each rider with one gear bag. Please do not bring any other luggage/bags. You and our volunteers must handle these bags each day so limit what you pack to 40 pounds or less. This document has more information about what to bring.
