Check out the site map. All bikes should enter at the Spectator Entry Gate. We will try to have a loading/unloading area near that gate if you are bringing in several bikes.
Once you get to the gate if you didn’t pre-register you will pay to get in, $15 for the first bike and $5 for each additional bike. Once you pay they will give you bike number(s). If you registered online your name will be on the list at the Spectator Entry Gate.
After you have paid and have your bike number(s) take your bike(s) to the big yellow building, that is where most bikes will be. If you want to be in the building get there early, when the building is full we will stage bikes outside.
After you have your bike set up and put your bike number on it, go to the Registration table that will be just outside of the yellow building. If you didn’t register online you will complete the registration form and they will give you a participation sticker and your “Official Ballot”.
